This program provided corrective reading instruction for disadvantaged pupils (grades 1-3) from black, Mexican-American and Anglo low income families. Instruction was provided for small groups (three to six pupils) by remedial reading teachers, one teacher being shared by two schools. The program also included the assistance of classroom aides, psychologists, and counselors, and the use of special instructional materials and cultural enrichment activities. An in-service training program designed for all project personnel aimed to acquaint staff with the special problems of disadvantaged students. The Wide Range Achievement Test was used in 1966-67 to measure gains, which averaged nine months. Time between testings was about six months. In 1967-68 students gained an average four and one-half months in a period of just under four months between testings. Lists of special instructional materials and tables showing test result data are included. (KG)
