Inservice Reading Resource Kit and Project Reading Alert: Package 5--Classroom Management.
New York State Education Dept., Albany. Bureau of Reading Education.
Developed and coordinated by the Bureau of Reading Education of the New York State Education Department, Project Alert is a statewide inservice program to facilitate instituting or improving the diagnostic-prescriptive approach to reading instruction. As part of this program, a reading resource kit was prepared by the bureau to give structure and direction to the projects in the local schools. This multimedia kit presently has six packages, with three more to be prepared. Each of the packages in the kit analyzes one skills topic in reading. The fifth package, "Classroom Management," contains materials intended to help teachers organize their classrooms effectively so that individual needs can be met through appropriate group or individual learning activities. The first section of the package emphasizes the importance of using relevant student data as the foundation of instructional planning. The next section focuses on possible staff patterns and the relationship of classroom organization to learning. And the last section deals with the instructional program. In each section, assigned tasks involve the teacher in actual procedures for classroom management. An overview of Project Alert and the administrator's handbook, which describes the intended uses of the packages, are included with each package. (TO)
