A Program to Improve School Achievement in a Stable Residential Community: Center Hill Elementary School, 1972-73. Research and Development Report, Vol. 7, No. 50, April 1974.
Branch, Helen M.; Evans, Dale
In terms of mobility, the average enrollment, and the percent of attendance, Center Hill School has moved toward an ideal set of circumstances for effective instruction. That is, children who enter the school tend to stay, their attendance is more regular, and a larger percentage of the days in the school year are spent in the classroom by each pupil. The facilities are not stretched beyond the point for which they were designed. The Title I, Elementary Secondary Education Act of 1965 program supports the positions of a lead teacher, a certified teacher, and gives instructional aides in addition to the resource rooms where the 112 eligible children are given their compensatory activities. The objectives for this program are: (1) to increase the pupils' basic understanding of words, sentences, paragraphs, and stories; (2) to develop an increased independence in reading; (3) to improve oral communication; (4) to develop and improve skill in identifying information through reading; and (5) to improve the pupils' self-concept and attitudes toward school. One Title I aide is in the Career Opportunities Program. During five weeks beginning June 1972, a group of approximately 30 participants was enrolled in an English course at Clark College to learn about self-expression through writing. (Author/JM)
