Mason County Reading Plan.
Mason County Schools, Maysville, KY.
An organizational reading plan for grades 4 through 8, based on the Joplin Plan for cross-grade grouping, was developed at an ESEA/Title III workshop by a reading committee of teachers from Mason County, Kentucky. In this program, students are assigned to interclass reading groups according to tested achievement, performance, and teacher judgment. Provisions for some flexibility of group assignments are made. Classes meet for a 1-hour period, 5 days a week. The report card shows both the child's assigned reading level (such as low-6) and a corresponding letter grade indicating the child's achievement at that level rather than at the standard reading level of his class placement. Suggestions for parent involvement and criteria for evaluating the program are given. Supplementary instructional materials and professional books are listed. (CM)
