This program, included in "Effective Reading Programs...," serves 350 seventh graders and 295 eighth graders from middle-income families. The seventh-grade component began in 1971; the eighth-grade component began in 1973. The results of diagnostic tests administered to all seventh graders are used to write individualized educational prescriptions for each student. Prescriptions are flexible and provide the student with a choice of materials and media that concentrate on each key reading skill. The prescriptions are kept with individual progress sheets in the reading laboratory, where the members of each seventh-grade class work with their English teacher and two reading specialists for 45 minutes each week. Students with severe reading deficiencies come to the reading lab for additional 30-minute periods each day and continue working from their prescriptions. The eigth-grade phase combines a multimedia approach with work in a reading lab. Procedures and instructional activities of this component are similar to those in the seventh-grade lab. Additionally, the eighth graders attend a television lab in which reading comprehension skills are taught. (TO/AIR)
