Field Trial of Wisconsin Design for Reading Skill Development and CEMREL Aesthetic Education Program. Final Report.
Tidwell, Kenneth W.; And Others
This report describes field test activities for the Wisconsin Design for Reading Skill Development and for CEMREL's Aesthetic Education Program. The word attack element of the Design was implemented in schools in Alabama, Florida, and Georgia in the 1970-71 school year. The analysis of progress in word attach and other reading skills of children with two years' experience in the Word Attack program determined that the children showed progressive increases on the evaluation tests for some skills and slight decreases for others. The participating schools plan to continue their work with the Wisconsin program in 1972 and beyond. CEMREL's Aesthetic Education Program was tested in thirty-one schools in Alabama, Florida, and Georgia. The primary purpose of the field trial was to evaluate the relationship between CEMREL's Program and the total school instructional program. The results of the field trial indicated that the Program was successful and that it could be installed with a minimum amount of teacher training. Schools will continue to use the Program during 1972-73. (See also ED 048 274 and ED 056 829 for related documents.) (Pages 112-22 may be illegible in reproduction due to small type.) (Author/WR)
