Talking Typewriter. Title I Evaluation, 1972-1973.
The Talking Typewriter Program has been operative in the Cleveland Public Schools as a strategy to improve the reading skills of identified fourth grade pupils in 12 Title I schools. A responsive and autotelic environment augmented by selected materials, special teaching techniques, the expertise of trained staff, and individualized tutoring formed the core of a design geared toward the removal of reading frustrations which many children have faced throughout the primary grades. The project operated under the supervision of the Educational Program Manager of the Reading Instruction Program assisted in part by one consultant. Delivery of instruction was the responsibility of three reading consultants. Their duties included testing and diagnosis, instructional planning, concept presentation, prescriptive teaching, individualization, consultation, and remediation. Additional support in remediation efforts was given by tutors assigned to the project from the Resident Tutor Project under the supervision of the talking typewriter professional staff. The five Talking Typewriters were monitored and operated by three educational assistants. (Author/JM)
