A Demonstration Project for Target Area Children.
Anaheim City School District, CA.
This program, included in "Effective Reading Programs...," serves 184 disadvantaged white and Spanish-speaking children ranging in age from four to seven and having pretest reading scores of at least one grade level below expectancy. Individualized reading instruction and multilevel grouping are the focus of this program, begun in 1970. A diagnostic-prescriptive reading profile is developed for each student, and instruction is based on objectives. Classrooms feature learning and interest centers. Learning packages are organized to teach specific skills and are coded for use by the teacher, aide, or parent or by the child independently. The packets emphasize self-correcting and self-pacing activities and employ a multimedia approach. The materials include linguistics and phonics textbooks, worksheets, workbooks, library books, audiovisual media, and manipulative devices. Intergroup relations are stressed through a bicultural enrichment program, and parent and community involvement is emphasized in a school advisory program, volunteer program, and home visits. (TO)
