Southeast Arkansas Educational Service Center, Title III. Final Report.
Southeast Arkansas Educational Service Center, Monticello.
The results of five projects are presented in this report. Project 1, "An Exemplary First Grade Reading Program," attempted to establish an exemplary first grade reading program over a two-year period. The first year involved grouping as opposed to non-grouping. The second year a non-graded primary was established. The findings indicated that the non-graded program was successful in individualizing instruction. Project 2, "An Exemplary Special Education Work Center," involved educable mentally retarded students in real-life situations similar to ones the children would encounter in adult life. The findings indicated that students achieved approximately 78 percent of the individual behavioral objectives written for them. Project 3, "An Exemplary Lower Elementary Reading Project," was designed to increase the reading ability of disadvantaged students in a black elementary school. In project 4, "Warren Science Project," the objectives were to increase the science achievement of the laboratory groups as compared to the control groups, to show that the attitude scores of the laboratory group were higher than those of the control groups, and to show that the laboratory group exhibited a greater preference for science. Project 5, "An Examplary In-Service Program for Improving Classroom Instruction," was designed to evaluate curriculum materials. (WR)
