Sinclairville Right to Read SILO [Sinclairville Individualized Learning Organizer].
Cassadaga Valley Central Schools, Sinclairville, NY. Right to Read Center.
One of the programs included in "Effective Reading Programs...," this program's goals are to improve children's reading ability, to provide each child with an individually tailored instruction prescription based on diagnosed needs, and to involve the community in a democratic process of planning and helping. The program is operated in one elementary school which serves 500 predominantly white children in grades K-6. The students live in rural areas and are from low-income families. Teachers use an 80-page guide to available diagnostic instruments and prescriptive materials that summarizes the potential resources of the program and outlines the means to reach the defined objectives. Classroom organization varies, and students are assigned to classrooms which suit their individual needs. Teachers ascertain the reading needs of each student and prepare a prescription of instructional activities designed to meet these needs. All available commercial and locally developed instructional materials have been keyed to the specific skill areas and are organized for easy reference in the Sinclairville Individualized Learning Organizer. Many of the materials used are self-correcting, and in many classrooms contracts are used. (WR/AIR)
