[Individualized Reading and Social Science Program.]
Georgia Univ., Athens.
This program, included in "Effective Reading Programs...," serves over 800 rural elementary school students, both black and white. The program curriculum is designed to improve the student's basic skills in reading and social science learning. The student reads or listens to short passages that are based on the concept of the functional community. After each passage, the student answers up to 18 multiple-choice questions that are directly related to the content of the passage but that may require the student to evaluate or generalize from the passage. Students score their own tests and enter their scores on reading profile sheets. Project students receive about 50 minutes a day of instruction in this reading program. At the beginning of the year, each student's reading status is determined from his or her ability to read the first two or three passages in the curriculum. Students who read the first several passages correctly proceed through the materials at their own rate, recording answers to the questions following each passage on an answer sheet, scoring the sheet, and recording their scores on profiles. During this process the teacher serves as a supervisor, adviser, and motivator. (WR/AIR)
