Region One Right to Read Project. Right to Read Annual Performance Report, .
Linton, Thomas H.
The Region 1 Right-to-Read Project was initiated in seven Texas school districts in 1972-73 and was continued in the 1973-74 school year. All seven districts decided to use a bilingual Spanish-English reading approach beginning at the kindergarten level. In September 1973 the program was expanded to include first grade students who were in the kindergarten program. Consequently, the 1973-74 program included 43 first grade classrooms; total enrollment was approximately 1,100 in the first grade and 1,000 in kindergarten. The bilingual materials were the first and second year materials from a sequential, 3-year Elementary and Secondary Education Act program designed for Mexican American children with little or no knowledge of English. A revised administrative procedure for tracking the achievement and progress of students in each classroom was developed and implemented for 1973-74. The project staff designed three charts for teachers to use to track individual progress and achievement: (1) the Oral English Classroom Record Sheet; (2) the Spanish Reading Classroom Record Sheet; and (3) the English Reading Classroom Record Sheet. The various objectives for the different levels are given, with tables presenting the achievement results for the year. (KM)
