The Three R's--Reading, Reading, Reading: A Survey of Procedures and Practices Used to Teach Reading in New Jersey Schools.
Swalm, James E.; Hunt, Barbara C.
Teachers and administrators are constantly called upon to examine and evaluate the procedures and practices they use to teach reading. The purpose of this study was to develop base-line data on the practices and procedures currently being used in New Jersey schools. The information was collected through questionnaires constructed from a list of topics compiled by the state reading consultant and evaluated by committees from the New Jersey Helping Teacher Association and New Jersey Reading Teacher Association. There were three basic sections to the questionnaire: the central office (sent to 562 school systems), the elementary (K-8), and the secondary (7-12). The last two sections were each sent to a 20 percent random sample. The first part of the report presents a general overview of the state, K-12. The next section presents the elementary school data followed by the secondary school data and some comparisons with elementary school practices where relevant. The last sections summarize the major highlights of the survey and present conclusions and recommendations. (TO)
