[Learning Achievement through Saturated Educational Resources (LASER)].
Riverside Unified School District, CA.
One of the programs included in "Effective Reading Programs...," this program serves 414 students in K-6. The students are black, white, and Spanish-speaking and come largely from low-income families living in a small city. The dominant feature of the program is the extensive employment of specialized instructional staff, both professional and paraprofessional. In order to increase their effectiveness with children, teachers and aides receive inservice training based on individual assessment of students' special strengths and needs. Teaching focuses on a diagnostic-prescriptive approach which includes pretesting, developing an individualized program of study, and maintaining a profile detailing the needs, program, and progress of each child. Team teaching and learning centers are employed. For children who do not function adequately and confidently in English, bilingual instructional support is provided through two programs: English is a second language and bilingual language development. A multicultural component is designed to promote racial and ethnic awareness and understanding among staff, students, and community members. (WR/AIR)
