One of the twelve exemplary programs summarized in the Introduction to Right to Read's "Effective Reading Programs: Summaries of 222 Selected Programs" (CS001934), this program serves first through fifth graders in four inner-city schools with an individualized reading program, emphasizing the decoding process in the primary grades, and comprehension and interpretation in the intermediate grades. The primary-level curriculum is the same for all children, beginning with letter sounds and blending, and progressing to programed readers. The children progress through the lessons at individual rates. The intermediate-level curriculum uses a reading center stocked with a wide variety of materials. Materials and activities relate to 500 objectives, each of which has a check-in and check-out test and prescriptions for using reading center materials. Diagnostic tests are used to indicate the level at which each child should be working and, therefore, the specific objective toward which each child should work. (WR/AIR)
