Reading Improvement Project, Title I Evaluation 1971-1972.
Logan, Juanita; Fleming, Margaret
The Cleveland Reading Improvement Project attempts to provide specialized reading instruction for disadvantaged pupils in the primary grades. The project utilized the services of a reading consultant in each target school and serves children who have been identified by their classroom teachers and school principals as experiencing difficulty in mastering reading. Master Teachers and educational aides furnish individual and small group instruction on a daily basis. Other key components of the program include: the diagnosis of pupil reading needs, a wide range of alternative instructional techniques, a variety of reading materials, parental involvement, and feedback to the classroom teacher. Findings in the fourth year of the project indicate a significant improvement in the reading performance of children who participated in the program during the 1971-72 school year. A full description of the project, evaluation of the results, and conclusions and recommendations are given. The appendixes include statistical information and sample forms used in the project. Some data from the project's inception in 1969 through 1972 are also provided. (TO)
