Title II Reading Projects Promote Skill and Interest in Reading; ESEA Title II and the Right to Read Notable Reading Projects.
Office of Education (DHEW), Washington, DC.
The 21 Title II reading projects described in this report range from a team-teaching approach in intensive reading for first-grade pupils to a free-wheeling project in a high school where classes stop daily for a 30-minute "Read In." Many of the projects offer suggestions that may be helpful in the selection and evaluation of books and other media. Others suggest ways to improve reading skills that enable the disadvantaged and the advantaged to increase their understanding of contemporary social issues. Still other projects offer examples of activities that motivate children and young people to read and learn. Two of the projects suggest that the teaching of reading be combined with the acquisition of study skills, emphasizing the location and use of information with discrimination. And, finally, several projects build on the important role pupils can play in defining what they wish to study and selecting learning materials that have the greatest value for them. The objectives, a brief description, the number of pupils served, the amount of funds granted, an evaluation, and the name and address of the director are included for each project. (TO)
