Correct Reading Services.
Upper Dublin School District, Ft. Washington, PA.
This program, included in "Effective Reading Programs...," serves 150 children in kindergarten through grade 9 who are reading below grade level and show measurable potential for improvement. The activities in which children engage depend on the diagnosis of their skill deficiencies. At each grade level, a reading specialist leads small groups of from six to ten children with similar reading problems. At the elementary level, children with severe word-recognition problems are given remedial word-learning activities. General reading and language problems, including younger students' deficiencies in language readiness, are treated with a language-experience approach. At the secondary level, groups are formed for children with mild and severe reading problems. All of these groups meet from two to five times a week under the direction of a reading specialist. Skills taught in these groups are reinforced by the regular classroom teacher. Children who need concentrated language readiness and beginning reading instruction are placed in an open-space second grade. In this setting, two classroom teachers and volunteer aides work with a reading specialist on an intense language readiness program. (WR/AIR)
