Basic Skills; ESEA Title III Projects in the Nation's Schools.
The Title III Quarterly, Fall 1974
This report describes 10 projects that deal with effective and efficient methods of teaching and learning. "Communication Skills Improvement for Junior High Students" has three objectives: (a) to build increased interest in reading, (b) to provide assistance in developing reading skills, and (c) to provide teachers with various aids to improve reading proficiency in content areas. "Basic Skills-Oriented Learning Packages" is a project that developed learning packages to facilitate the learning and teaching of basic skills. The project "Individualized Strategy in Early Childhood Education" developed basic processes for learning at an early age. Three projects, "Summer Television Arithmetic and Reading,""A Thematic Approach to Reading Utilizing Library Media," and "Project Media Literacy: From Theory to Realism," see media as a means of improving student interest and motivation in the acquisition of basic skills. The latter project provides a curriculum designed to help students become discriminating readers and viewers while learning basic skills. "Espanola Reading Centers," concentrates on improving reading achievement scores. "Program for Low Achievers in Math" uses real-life tools and experiences to motivate students. The "Comprehensive Client-Oriented Basic Skills Center" project views teacher/staff development as an essential component of a successful program. The "Intensive Elementary Language Arts Program" follows the theory that if a student learns to read well in his early grades, he will meet with greater success in later grades. (PS)
