1970-71 Language Development; Intermediate and Secondary. Final Report.
The main emphasis of the Title I ESEA Intermediate and Secondary Language Development Component was to help raise the reading level of pupils who were above 80 in measured intelligence but who were achieving at least one year below grade level in reading level in reading skills on standardized tests. In addition, the Intermediate and Secondary Language Development Component included an extensive in-service program for both staff improvement and program development. The component served 23 public elementary schools, four non-public elementary schools, and nine public high schools. Fourteen hundred and fifty-eight pupils were originally enrolled in the component, and 1367 were enrolled at the end of the component. The teachers conducted small group sessions, with the average group size being eight pupils, approximately every school day for 50 minutes. The maximum teacher load at any one time during the year was 35. The pupils also attended regular classes and were encouraged to extend their reading skills in the regular classroom. Activities in the program concentrated on the following areas: motivation, motor activities, visual discrimination, auditory perception, listening, sight vocabulary, word analysis, comprehension, phonics, and study skills.
