This program, included in "Effective Reading Programs...," serves 800 students and the faculty of a junior high school. The purpose of the program is to increase students' reading proficiency. Efforts are concentrated on three approaches. The first approach is designed to help faculty members and volunteers promote reading skills. Inservice training emphasizes diagnosis and remediation and consists of sessions for volunteers and the entire faculty, a preschool workshop for language arts teachers, miniworkshops, demonstrations for small teacher groups, and faculty visits to other schools and projects. The second approach involves students with severe reading problems. After testing, students are given clinical aid and tutored on a one-to-one basis in reading laboratories. The third approach involves all students and is aimed at increasing interest in reading. All students take a course in reading for enjoyment and record their goals and progress. Activities such as video-taping of plays and skits, writing original stories, and keeping a vocabulary notebook are part of the course. (WR/AIR)
