A Phonics-Peer Instruction Program.
Rivkin, Fredric A.; Dreiman, Martha
This program, included in Effective Reading Programs . . . serves approximately 500 pupils in kindergarten through grade six who are eligible for Title I services. About 50 percent of the students are black and about 50 percent are white. Pupil selection is based on low reading capability as determined by test scores, pupil performance, or teacher judgment. The program's content and instructional system were developed by the project coordinators using a commercially available phonics program. They divided the content into 25 modules that described terminal behaviors. A series of tasks for each module was prepared. For each task a set of pupil performance objectives was generated, and from the objectives, Quality Control Check Tests were developed. The program is carried out by the regular classroom teacher, who ensures that 30 minutes a day is devoted to the program. The instructional system consists of six steps: becoming familiar with the task, teaching the skills, performing the skills, taking the Quality Control Check Tests, recycling the particular tasks, and achieving mastery. Following mastery of the materials, the student goes on to become a peer instructor for other students entering the sequence. (WR/AIR)
