ESEA Title I. Anatomy of an Elementary Project.
Martin, Peter A.
School districts in New York State have been engaged in developing E.S.E.A. Title I projects since 1965. This document represents an attempt to formulate some aspects of this experience in a form useful for project directors. The content of this report is based on the recorded experiences of one school district during the summer of 1970 in running remedial reading and mathematics programs. An analysis of the results of the New York State mathematics and reading tests in grades three and six and the Iowa Test of Basic Skills in grades four and five indicated that problem solving is an area of major difficulty. Conferences with classroom teachers and remedial personnel confirmed the need for attacking problem solving techniques in conjunction with reading difficulties. This recommendation was made to the Superintendent and the Board of Education who concurred with the professional findings. The decision was made to concentrate on this problem by implementing a special pilot program during the summer which would serve as a launching platform for further district action in the fall.
