The Impact of Federal Programs on Learning to Read in Appalachia.
Mynhier, Betsy
Federal programs in operation in Kentucky's Appalachian counties are briefly discussed. A computer-assisted instruction program (Title III/ESEA) serves as a supplement to regular instruction in 20 counties. Several Title I and Title III classroom reading and library programs provide instructional and supplementary activity, and teacher aide and inservice training programs provide upgraded instruction for both teachers and students. There is a trend toward the fields of child development, inquiry training, programed learning, and educational psychology. Comments by teachers, parents, and children attest to the success of specific programs in Clay, Pike, Lawrence, and Floyd counties and in a number of independent districts. Comments concerning improvement in the quality of teaching and learning and objectives for continuation of programs complete the report. (MD)
