Intensive Reading Improvement Program (IRIP)--A Staff Development Project.
Chicago Public Schools, IL.
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 aims to improve reading achievement through an intensive effort to educate teachers in the essential theories and methods of teaching developmental reading. Operating in a cross-section of Chicago city schools, the program trains one teacher for each participating school to serve as a reading resource teacher. After receiving 60 hours of training, this resource teacher provides 30 hours on in-depth staff development activities to all teachers at each school. A program newsletter describing developments in the improved teaching of reading at participating schools is disseminated to all Chicago public schools. (WR/AIR)
