ESSO--Self-Concept and Basic Reading in a Secondary School Program.
Theofield, Mary B.
The English/Social Studies Opportunity (ESSO) Program is a program designed for students with learning problems at Paint Branch High School in Burtonsville, Maryland. The program blends remedial reading and special education into a secondary school program which attempts to build reading and study skills, to effect positive self-concept, and to prepare students to cope with adult life situations. English and social studies are taught in a resource-room setting by the ESSO team, which consists of a reading teacher, two special education teachers, and an aide; however, only two team members are in each class of 25-30 students during a class period. Students are mainstreamed in other academic and special subjects classes; they receive positive support and instructional assistance by the ESSO team, whose resources are available to both students and subjects. Sample schedules for two specific students are discussed to amplify the description of the program. (MKM)
