Watson, Patricia; And Others
Journal of Research and Evaluation of the Oklahoma City Public Schools, v4 n11 Entire Issue Oct 1974
This study is a final evaluation of the Harding, Oklahoma, Right to Read project covering the time period from the summer of 1972 through the summer of 1974. The purposes of the longitudinal study were to describe each phase of the project and to answer two questions: What was the nature of inservice training given to teachers? What classroom experiences did teachers provide that were designed to improve students' reading skills? To evaluate the program the following questions were asked: What were the student outcomes? Did reading skills improve significantly? Which characteristics of the project are worthy of replication and which ones are to be avoided in similar programs? The results indicated that the general unity of staff effort and an increase in teachers' skills in the teaching of reading were shown. In classes where the program was not operational, students did not show significant gains. Full or partial participation in the program was related to positive reading achievement gains of the students. (WR)
