Special Reading Project, Secondary Level.
Palestine Independent School District, TX.
The Special Reading Project is designed to serve those students who are identified as education deprived (not achieving at grade level expectancy) in the language arts area. The project is staffed with personnel trained to diagnose learning problems and prescribe individual educational plans to be implemented through prescriptive teaching. The ultimate goal of the project is to identify and assist students with specific reading disabilities and to provide instruction of a corrective nature that will narrow the gap between their present functional level and their potential. Individual educational plans are designed to redirect the traditional approach from teaching to learning uniquely structured to meet individual needs. The following variables are included in the educational environment: teacher-attitude or approach, teaching methods, specific educational objectives for each pupil in need, special services, curriculum modification, instructional materials, and equipment. Evaluation in the project is assessed through administering pre- and post-achievement tests, periodic progress reports based upon diagnostic tests, and regularly scheduled grade reports, and teachers observations of attitudinal changes, interest, and participation.
