This program, included in "Effective Reading Programs...," serves 346 children in kindergarten through grade six. About 50 percent of the children are rural blacks, and about 50 percent are whites from the suburbs of a small city. To provide meaningful reading instruction that will enable the students to read at or above expected levels, the program equips its teachers with tools to assess reading problems and then to plan individualized programs that will best fulfill the students' instructional and emotional needs. Each child completes the work outlined on his or her prescription, which in turn results in reassessment of the reading problems and redesign of the prescription. This process repeats itself continuously throughout the year for each student. Teachers use a variety of instruments to make appropriate diagnoses--workbooks and textbooks, programed materials, and standardized tests. Teachers are sensitive to the necessity of selecting materials that are suitable to the pupil's personal needs and are often assisted in this selection by the students themselves. Instructional materials consist of commercially available kits, programed and basal readers, audiovisual aids, and many teacher-made games. (WR/AIR)
