[Weldon Elementary School Reading Program.]
Clovis Unified School District, CA.
This program, included in "Effective Reading Programs...," serves 485 white and Spanish-speaking students in K-6. In the program, begun in 1970, state-mandated basal reading series are supplemented by four locally developed programs: Levels Design Letter Readiness, Rebus Reading, Project Read, and Great Studies. The Levels Design Letter Readiness Program is used to teach letter names and sounds to kindergarten children. The Rebus Reading Program is designed to prepare kindergarten children for work with preprimers. Project Read is a decoding and comprehension skills program designed for students in grades 2-6. When students are able to pass check tests and posttests in their weak skill areas, they move on to more advanced project objectives. The Great Studies Program was developed to encourage students in grades 4-6 to diversify their reading habits. Students read and report on books in 18 different categories. In addition, study guides and word games supplement the basal reading program. (TO)
