Interdisciplinary Programs.
Brink, Steve; And Others
One of the programs included in "Effective Reading Programs...," this program is designed for those students who are reading below grade level. The program serves 500 ninth-grade students from a residential area of a large city. The students are predominantly white and from middle-income families. The objective of the course is to develop the student's basic study skills, sight vocabulary, word attack skills, and reading comprehension. Instruction is under the supervision of a reading consultant, whose activities fall into three major areas: providing remedial reading instruction for those students whose standardized test scores and classroom performance indicate a severe remedial need, grouping the students into cluster classes based on their reading and composition skills, and providing inservice help for cluster teachers who provide reading instruction as a regular part of their classes. The major activities in the program include oral reading, reading games, the use of tape recordings to learn word sounds, timed and recreational reading, work with reading machines, listening for comprehension, and workbook exercises for programed instruction. College student aides assist the severely handicapped students. (WR/AIR)
