Kansas Right-to-Read Plan.
Kansas State Dept. of Education, Topeka.
The objective for the Kansas Right-to-Read Program is to assure that every child enrolled in regular classrooms in public schools in Kansas shall be able to read fifth grade level material with at least 75 percent comprehension and a reading rate of at least 125 words per minute. This objective will hopefully be reached by 1980. It is proposed that during the 1970-71 school year a reading test be given each fifth grade student in Kansas. The results of this examination will be analyzed and used as a basis for activities during summer workshops, which will emphasize training for the elementary classroom teacher. The activities for the workshops are outlined for 1971-72 through 1976-80. Possible incentive/motivational strategies are listed, including (1) one hour of credit toward certification renewal; (2) release time for teachers to take part in the inservice programs; (3) a stipend for each participant in the inservice program; and (4) graduate credits for the inservice course participants. The remainder of the proposal discusses the rationale for teacher-oriented programs, the extent of the problem, comparison research, and innovation and change in reading instruction. (WR)
