McGraw-Hill Programmed Reading Evaluation.
Norfolk Public Schools, VA.
One of the programs included in "Effective Reading Programs...," this program, begun in 1972, serves about 3,600 disadvantaged first through fourth grade students. The independent learning approach is featured in this program. Placement tests help teachers determine each child's needs, and diagnostic tests monitor student progress. Programed readers enable students to work independently and to check their own work. Classroom aides and reading teachers assist in the classroom and prepare instructional aids and games for student use. Inservice training is stressed throughout the year and include on-site supervision of classroom teachers and aides and monthly training sessions of about one hour. The programed reading program published by McGraw-Hill Book Company provides the core of this program. In addition to the programed readers, a number of other materials are used. (TO/AIR)
