Child Parent Centers.
Chicago Public Schools, IL.
One of twelve exemplary programs summarized in the Introduction to Right to Read's "Effective Reading Programs: Summaries of 222 Selected Programs" (CS001934), the goal of this program is to reach disadvantaged children when they are three years old and to provide them with consistent, unbroken instruction through the third grade. Eleven centers serve a total of over 2000 inner-city children, each center offering a unique instructional program tailored to its own community. All centers have a basic skills orientation and aim at developing pupils' use of language, but while some centers use tightly structured linguistic programs, others have chosen approaches which allow more pupil independence. Parents have an integral role in the program, spending two days a month at their centers in meetings, in home economics classes, or as staff volunteers. (WR/AIR)
