A Study of the Elementary Summer School Remedial Reading Program of the Omaha Public Schools.
Fitch, Margaret Ellen
The purpose of this study was three-fold: (1) to make a study of the Elementary Summer School Remedial Reading Program of the Omaha Public Schools; (2) to evaluate the growth patterns and achievement trends of fifth grade students in the remedial reading program; and (3) to determine specific recommendations for future programs for summer school reading instruction. A brief history and description of the summer remedial reading program of the Omaha schools from 1968 through 1972 was included in the study, and an analysis was made of the growth patterns of fifth grade students enrolled in the remedial reading program during the summer session of 1971. Some of the conclusions indicated: (1) a follow-up study should be made on individuals who showed an unusual growth pattern in vocabulary and comprehension in relationship to their IQ; (2) consideration should be given to greater coordination of the activities of the summer school inservice programs with the regular school year; and (3) methods of selecting students to attend summer school should be reviewed.
