To Coordinate Existing Resources to Meet the Needs of Students at the Primary Level.
Miller, Irving
This practicum was designed to develop an intervention prescriptive team model which would utilize the resources of the primary level to improve student achievement. Specifically, the intervention prescriptive team model sought to improve the achievement of third grade underachievers and serious underachievers in reading and mathematics. The intervention program was developed at the primary grade levels (1-3) through a restructuring of the use of pupil personnel, reading specialists, the building principal, and the classroom teacher in a diagnostic-prescriptive team model. The demonstrated achievement over expectancy of both underachievers and serious underachievers in reading suggests that the intervention program with its tasks orientation, problem-solving approach, and system of monitoring should be expanded to the intermediate grades (4-6) and be given serious study as a model for instruction strategies for all students and not just for underachievers. (This report contains descriptions of the practicum procedurs, several case studies, and evaluation of the practicum, and recommendations.) (Author/BD)
