This report includes evaluations of four New York City school district educational projects funded under Title I of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965. The Intensive Reading Program offered concentrated, individual reading instruction to needy open enrollment children as well as some indistrict pupils. The program's objectives were: (1) to raise substantially the reading levels of those needy open enrollment pupils, and (2) to change positively their attitudes toward and use of books and related reading materials. The Reading Skills Center focused primarily on open enrollment fourth, fifth, and sixth grade children in need of remedial reading. The major goal of the program was to significantly raise the reading skills of these open enrollment children as well as their in-district classmates. A second, ancillary goal was related to altering the classroom approaches of teachers to reading. The Junior High Reading Laboratory Program focused largely on open enrollment children in junior high grades who were two years behind in their reading levels. The major objectives of the program were to substantially raise the reading levels of these children and to effect positive change in their self-images and their attitudes toward reading, books, and school. The purpose behind the Environmental Center Program was to develop in low-achieving, fifth grade children a greater understanding and appreciation of the interdependency of plants, animals, and their natural habitats. The Program placed special emphasis upon the problems of ecology, pollution, and man's effect on his surroundings. (Author/JM)
