Instructional Centers, Hartford Nonpublic Schools. Hartford Moves Ahead: An Evaluative Report, 1973-1974.
Nearine, Robert J.
Since the project evaluation for the last years indicated that pupil achievement and growth were significant, the corrective program in reading, language arts, and mathematics operated with Title 1, 1965 Elementary Secondary Education Act, and State Act for Disadvantaged Children funding was continued during the 1973-74 school year in seven elementary schools and one high school in Hartford. An Instructional Center approach was the core of this program in which specific remedial/corrective instruction was provided to eligible students who had reading, language, and/or mathematics learning problems. The instructional program emphasized corrective reading and language arts skills. Remedial mathematics instruction continued at the Cathedral of St. Joseph School and at St. Peter School. Instruction was provided on a scheduled basis during the regular school day. The equivalent of 13 full-time teachers were employed to teach in the Instructional Center Program. These teachers worked in teaching teams on a part-time basis, generally half days. In addition, eight instructional aides worked with children in the centers under the supervision of the instructional center teachers. These paraprofessionals allowed the teachers to offer more individualized and more intensive instruction to the students. (Author/JM)
