[Mentor High School Reading Program.]
Mentor Exempted Village School District, OH.
This program, begun in 1968 and included in "Effective Reading Programs...," serves about 2,800 students in grades 10-12. A secondary reading skills chart was developed, behavioral objectives were written, and minimal-competency tests in both reading and sriting were prepared. During the school year, all skills listed on the chart are reviewed by all tenth-grade students in every language arts class. In April, the two competency tests are administered to these students. Students whose test results indicate that they are deficient in reading or writing skill development are required to enroll in a corrective program at the beginning of the 11th grade. They remain in the program until they have reached competency level. Students who demonstrate reading and writing competency in grade 10 are free to enroll in courses in the nine-week elective program in grades 11 and 12, where development in the four language skills areas--reading, writing, speaking, and listening--is continued, using interest-centered content. Teachers in content areas other than language arts are also involved in the program, working with the reading specialist and using the learning/media centers with their students. (TO/AIR)
