The Hawaii English Program.
Hawaii State Dept. of Education, Honolulu.
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 is designed to accommodate all types of learners in the same multigraded classroom. Reading skills study each day begins with a planning circle, where each student may consider the activities available and, with the teacher's help, choose the mode of learning in which he or she can be most successful. Activities are done in small groups, in pairs, or individually until the end of the period, when all the students meet to evaluate their progress. At the sixth-grade achievement level in the student's individual program, reading widely, discussing what has been read, and learning techniques to increase reading comprehension are stressed.
