Falconer Central School Summer School Program (ESEA Title I), July 5-21, 1972.
Bauman, Daniel; And Others
The major purposes of the summer reading program of the Falconer School, funded through ESEA Title I, were (1) to provide remedial assistance in reading to students, and (2) to provide a setting for staff innovation. Individualized instruction was central to the program in which new materials, techniques, and learning conditions were tried. The program attempted to operationalize the open classroom and vertical grouping concepts. Discussed are (1) Planning and Preparation, (2) Goals and Objectives, (3) Preliminary Organizational Arrangements, (4) Inservice Activities, (5) Program Activities, (6) Evaluation. The program was very effective in implementing the open classroom concept and teachers learned new methods of instruction. The non-graded system, based on individual goal setting and interest activities was quite successful, as reflected by student reading gains and positive attitudes. (DP)
