Evaluating a Content Reading Program for An Inner City High School.
Spencer, Gary D.
An evaluation of an inner-city reading program which involved industry, university consultants, and the administrators and teachers of a large New Jersey high school led to several recommendations: (1) that schools and their faculties genuinely desire to participate in such a reading program, that school systems demonstrate their interest by matching project funds from other sources, and that the industry involved leave any policy changes to the school system; (2) that consultants involved be allowed uninhibited freedom to innovate; (3) that the program be first subjected to a trial period to be evaluated before any continuance of it; (4) that the changes innovated by the program aim at being usable by the classroom teachers and at being beneficial to the learner and to the community; and (5) that as many mutual and interdisciplinary lines of communication as possible lace the program, carrying information in all directions. References are included. (BT)
