This program, included in "Effective Reading Programs...," serves 450 educationally disadvantaged students, grades one through six, at five public schools. Also served are about 100 students at three private schools. The students live in a small city, are mostly white, and come from low-income families. Participating students are those who have not succeeded in the regular classroom. Included are primary students reading a half year or more below grade level, upper-elementary students reading one year or more below grade level, and those recommended by their teachers. Entering students are given a diagnostic test and then placed in classes of ten or less, according to their needs. These classes supplement regular classroom reading instruction. Classes run throughout the school year; if a student reaches grade level by midyear, he or she leaves the program and is replaced by another pupil needing help. Materials used in the program are not used in the regular classroom, and the special reading teacher coordinates each child's work with the classroom teacher, who receives the child's diagnostic test profile. A specially equipped classroom at each site is set aside for program activities. (ER/AIR)
