Federal Programs Supporting Educational Change, Vol. 3: The Process of Change. Appendix B: Innovations in Reading.
Wirt, John G.; And Others
This is the second of four appendixes to the Rand study "Federal Programs Supporting Education Change." This appendix deals primarily with Right-To-Read, a federally administered program that funds innovative reading projects in schools that have been nominated by their district. It also contains descriptions of some Elementary Secondary Education Act Title III reading projects. Section 1 describes the origins and the planning and management strategies that the United States Office of Education adopted for Right-To-Read. Section 2 describes the role that state education agencies attempt to play in their program. Section 3 presents syntheses of the fieldwork case studies, which describe the similarities and differences found in the planning, implementation, and adaptation of each of the projects covered. It also attempts to generalize from the limited evidence. Section 4 presents the individual case studies for these Right-To-Read and Title III projects. (Author)
