Andover's Individualized Reading System (AIRS).
Andover Public Schools, MA.
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 for the elementary school children of Andover, Massachusetts. These children are from high-income families and usually perform well in school. The program begins with individualized instruction in basic reading skills. Children are pretested and then assigned specific lessons. Skill instruction, for an individual or a small group, is followed by individually paced work on practice sheets, and a posttest. The teacher checks the posttest and then plans the student's next activities. When the students are able, they spend over half their time on individualized reading and free reading, and in discussions with the teacher about what they have read. (WR/AIR)
