New Dimensions in Language Development Skills for Rural Schools. End of Budget Period Report and Final Project Report.
Shasta County Superintendent of Schools, Redding, CA.
The purpose of this project was to increase the reading achievement of students in kindergarten through grade 8 in three rural schools in Shasta County, California. Current practices in the teaching of reading and the fine arts were analyzed and recommendations were made for the implementation of new techniques and methods to be incorporated into the reading program. It was hoped that these innovations would result, at the end of the project, in students reading at significantly higher levels. Activities consisted of the finalization of program design and the printing and distribution of an operational program manual. A teacher inservice program provided instructional activities to promote teacher acquisition of predetermined skills. (Author/WR)
