Phoenix Union High School District Reading and Title I Supplementary Program.
Phoenix Union High School District, AZ.
This program, included in "Effective Reading Programs...," serves 391 disadvantaged ninth- and tenth-grade students (about 20 percent are black) at eleven large city high schools in Phoenix. The program was begun in 1971 for students entering the ninth grade. By high school graduation, all students (excluding mentally handicapped and learning disability students) are required to pass twelve skill areas on a locally developed reading test. The skill areas covered in the program and required for graduation include using the context to find the meaning of unknown words, picking out main ideas, seeing relationships, recognizing cause and effect, following written directions, using the table of contents and index, and working with charts, graphs, and tables. In the reading centers, students use a wide variety of audiovisual materials and district-developed instructional minipacs. Some students participate in computer-assisted instruction. Reading teachers work with subject-matter teachers to ensure that students receive vocabulary-building exercises and productive reading assignments in their classes. (RB/AIR)
