[Education Task Force Recommendations to Improve Reading and Communication Skills.] Revised.
Wilson, E. Barbara
The Committee which prepared this report has surveyed the present approaches of teaching reading and communication skills in the Detroit, Michigan schools. The staff has examined previous studies of the Detroit Public Schools. The staff has conducted computer searches, reviewed relevant literature, consulted with nationally known reading specialists, and noted the stories in journals and the popular press. Staff has visited each region in the school district for in-depth discussions with curriculum leaders, achievement specialists, reading specialists, and others about regional language arts programs, and their perception of needs that would improve the teaching and learning of reading and communication skills in the classroom. Staff has had discussions with teachers and students about their perceptions of how reading and communication skills could be improved in the Detroit Public Schools. Staff has attended workshops and seminars pertaining to reading and communication skills, and has talked to creative people, writers, artists, television and radio producers and directors about ways in which media could help improve instruction and learning. Two colloquia were conducted under the leadership of the Education Committee. (Author/JM)
