[Framingham Public Schools Reading Program.]
Framingham Public Schools, MA.
This program, included in "Effective Reading Programs...," was begun in 1969 and involves all the district's 5,867 students in grades 1-5 in one or more of the program's components. The following five programs to help individualize elementary school reading instruction have been instituted: a comprehensive reading program, an early identification program, a transition grade program, a Title I remedial reading program, and an enrichment program. For the comprehensive reading program, a hierarchy of essential reading skills for K-6 has been developed. Teaching suggestions, useful materials, and criterion-referenced tests have been keyed to these skills. The transition grade program, for kindergarten children identified as high risk, is a one-year program before first grade, offering the children a chance to mature. The Title I program involves the use of modified Wisconsin Design materials to diagnose, prescribe, and evaluate students' progress toward specific reading behavioral objectives. The enrichment program consists of Junior Great Books clubs. Remedial reading classes are provided in each school. (TO)
