Report on an Individualized Reading Skills and Social Science Program in Progress.
Goolsby, Thomas M., Jr.; Stoltman, Joseph P.
Development of the Individualized Reading Skills and Social Science Program (IRSS) is described. This curriculum begins when most children start to read. If a child cannot read the page, the curriculum provides supplementary listening passages and readiness training assessment. Each child begins at his level of progress. The general structure of the materials is short passages followed by four response multiple choice questions. The social science content includes Site, Route and Boundary Components; Interdependence of Components; Economic, Political and Social Aspects of Components; Environmental Quality of Community; and Comparison of Communities in Different Parts of the World. The first segment of the IRSS program 1970-1971 was pilot-tested and analyzed in 1969-1970. Evaluation of an expanded field test in 1970-1971 indicates an absence of cooperation in administering the program at the classroom level. (DJ)
