The Sullivan Reading Program, Developed by Sullivan Associates, Menlo Park, California.
Thompson, Lorna J.
The Sullivan Reading Program is designed to teach reading, with the focus on basic skills, to children beginning in kindergarten and continuing through grade 3. It is also used in remedial reading instruction for children and adults of all ages. The two basic series of materials are the Programmed Reading series and the Sullivan Reading Program, accompanied by many supplementary materials. This report describes the rationale, various materials developed and the procedures for using them, the origins and developmental procedures, and the field tests carried out by independent school districts and researchers. It is based upon published materials, documents in the files of the developing agency, and interviews with staff who were involved in the product development. Diffusion, adoption, costs, and critical decisions made during the development are listed. This product development report is one of 21 such reports, each dealing with the developmental history of a recent educational product. References, tables, and appendixes are included. (AW)
