Title I Reading Center Program.
Broward County Schools, Fort Lauderdale, FL.
One of the twelve exemplary reading programs summarized in the Introduction to Right to Read's "Effective Reading Programs: Summaries of 222 Selected Programs" (CS001934), this program uses a variety of cross-referenced materials and small group instruction to develop students' reading skills, vocabulary, and reading comprehension. Students from low-income families who are functioning approximately two years below grade level in reading in grades one through six come to the reading center for one hour of instruction every other day. Based on the results of diagnostic tests, teachers prescribe an individualized program of learning and reinforcement activities for each child. A child spends part of each hour receiving direct instruction from a teacher in skills development and the remainder of the hour in reinforcement activities under the supervision of an aide. Incorporated into the program is ongoing inservice training. (TO/AIR)
