McKinley School Right to Read Project.
Parsons District Schools, KS.
This program, included in "Effective Reading Programs...," involves all 200 black and white pupils in kindergarten through grade 6 in this small city school. The program has several components: a free-reading period held for 20 minutes each day, a library program, and a reading plan which combines three programs into one. The three reading-plan programs are: the Wisconsin Design for Reading Skill Development, used for one 25-minute period each day to accomplish diagnostic-prescriptive techniques; basic reading, used for one hour a day at the primary level and two to three periods a week at the intermediate level; and individualized reading, offered for one hour each day. An additional component uses parents and community volunteers to tutor students on a one-to-one basis three times a week. The program emphasizes staff and parent development. Monthly inservice meetings for teachers are coordinated with evening meetings for parents at which some of the same speakers and consultants are used. Parent teas are held weekly to discuss issues in the reading program. (WR/AIR)
