Effective Reading Programs; Summaries of 222 Selected Programs.
ERIC Clearinghouse on Reading and Communication Skills, Urbana, IL.; American Institutes for Research in the Behavioral Sciences, Palo Alto, CA.
This catalog of reading programs is a result of an intensive search by the American Institutes for Research of reading programs in operation across the nation, followed by computer evaluation of the findings. Although the principal objective of the research was to produce multimedia inservice packages for reading teachers which demonstrate twelve outstanding programs, the number of effective reading programs discovered was too significant to go unreported. Summaries are given for each of the 222 programs judged to have potential for improving reading ability. The size of each program and its target population are described; its starting date, staff, and major features are given; its facilities, materials, and equipment are listed; and its cost is detailed. Sources of further information on each program are also included. The programs outline elementary, secondary, adult, and special education areas and cover a wide range of reading skills, organizational plans, and geographical areas. The twelve programs to be depicted in multimedia packages are also briefly described. More complete descriptions of most of the programs can be found in the ERIC system. (MKM)
