Pojoaque Valley Remedial Reading Program, Title I, ESEA, 1970-71.
Barton, Lydia P.
The remedial reading program at Pojoaque Elementary School, New Mexico, is summarized. The objectives were to improve the child's reading ability, personality development and assurance, and interest in the school routine. The program also aimed to provide the children with a positive environmental atmosphere. On the basis of teacher recommendation and testing, students attended the remedial reading classes two or three times a week. The classes were composed of less than six students at a session. Various causes of reading retardation were taken into consideration by the remedial teacher. Instruction in a wide range of reading skills was given, aiming at reading fro meaning and comprehension. Materials used included a variety of reading books, reading kits, programs, and games. Teaching machines such as the tachistoscope, controlled readers, audio-flashcard systems, the Hoffman Information Systems materials, and tape recorders were used to aid instruction. Student ability and achievement were measured by using different kinds of standardized tests for diagnosis and evaluation. The program also guided other creative projects such as a student-edited newspaper, book fair, and intracultural festival. Test scores and references are included. (AW)
