Model Cities: Guaranteed Reading Achievement.
Chicago Board of Education, IL.
As part of the Chicago Model Cities Reading Project, the Chicago Board of Education plans to conduct a performance-contract reading program. The primary objective is to raise the composite reading vocabulary and comprehensive skills of each pupil in the program, as measured by a standardized reading test, by more than one grade level equivalent during each school year of performance-contract instruction. Fulfilling this objective will be the only basis for reimbursement to the instructional contractor. Approximately 700 kindergarten and primary-grade children and 1,100 intermediate-grade pupils located in ten inner city elementary schools will serve as subjects. The proposed instruction will consist of 1 hour per day in special laboratories, and will begin in March 1971 and continue during the school year through February 1972. Included in this document are the following: the project description, the request for proposals, a description of the population selection and characteristics, and the proposal format and evaluation criteria. Tables and charts are included. (DE)
