This report concerns the present status of the Kansas Right to Read plan of action. Two years of activities are discussed--the 1971 summer workshop, evaluation of the first year's program (1971-72), and the 1972 summer workshops. Thirty classroom teachers took part in the one week summer workshop in 1971. This workshop was designed by the State Reading Education Specialist and other educators to prepare teachers to return to their schools and establish inservice programs. A workshop content survey was given, and this data indicated a definite knowledge gain in selected workshop topics. The evaluation of the first year's program reports on the responses of the teachers in the 1971 summer workshop regarding their success in sharing their workshop experiences. The teachers indicated a statistically significant increase, at the .01 level, in their over-all rating of their school reading program's effectiveness. The final report, for the two 1972 summer workshops, includes an evaluation by the 60 participants based on daily sessions, evaluation checklists, a pre-post workshop content survey, and a workshop summary. The overall evaluation score for both workshops was 9.7 on a 10-point scale. (WR)
