Teenage Success: A Language Arts Program for the Nonacademic Student.
Scott, Louise T.
The question of what secondary school can do to cope with the large number of poor readers, the high relationship between dropouts and reading abilities, the widely varying abilities within the classrooms, and the increasing lack of interest in reading among young people is discussed. A secondary language arts program for nonacademic students that has proved a success is described. The program, tried in the Florence Public Schools, Florence, South Carolina, emphasized the student's worth as an individual, helped to increase his self-confidence, provided ways for him to experience success, and coordinated training in listening, speaking, reading, and writing. The organization, results, and evaluation of the program are presented. It is concluded that the program reduced the number of dropouts and greatly increased student enthusiasm for reading and learning. (NH)
