Intensive Reading Instructional Teams, Hartford, Connecticut. An Evaluative Report.
Hartford Public Schools, CT.
For 6 years, three intensive reading instructional teams (IRIT's) provided intensive small-group reading instruction to school children within Hartford's validated target areas. A total of 363 children were assisted by the overall program. The centers also provided facilities for the diagnosis of reading problems, for team teaching, language enrichment, and for the use of eclectic approaches to reading instruction. The program was departmentalized with team members specializing in one of the three instructional areas: language development and individualized reading, decoding and word attack skills, and vocabulary and comprehension development. A number of techniques were employed for the overall assessment of the program. Various group test data which documented pupil progress for the implementation of prescriptive instruction were used, and several test analyses were developed. Improvement gains were significant at the .01 level. The test data were substantiated by an analysis of parent and teacher evaluation forms. A vast majority of comments reported were highly favorable toward the overall conduct of the program. Appendixes are included. (AW)
