Community School District No. 1: An Evaluation of the [1972-1973] State Urban Education Programs. Final Report.
Longo, Paul; And Others
The Uplifting Skills program attempted to improve the reading achievement of pupils through the diagnosis and remediation of perceptual problems and the creation of reading centers. The Elementary School Education Assistants program served 37 classes in grades 3-6 in all of the elementary schools in District 1. The educational assistants worked under the direction of the regular classroom teacher in the areas of classroom management and routines. The Diagnosing Reading Difficulties program was designed to help prevent reading failures in grades 1 and 2 by training teachers to identify reading difficulties of their students and to help the teachers plan a program of remedial instruction. Project Read was an individualized, self-pacing reading program designed to increase the interest and reading abilities of selected pupils in P.S. 140. The Supportive Training for Inexperienced and New Teachers consisted of 10 master teachers. Each supervised 8--10 new teachers. The goal of the Mathematics Laboratory Project was to identify third, fourth, and fifth grade children who were lowachievers in mathematics, and through the use of small group and individualized instruction to: (1) increase motivation to learn mathematics, (2) improve computational skills, and (3) assist teachers in using new materials and techniques.
