Addendum to ESEA Title I Program Evaluation [Phoenix Union High School System, Arizona].
Estes, Gary D.
An Elementary Secondary Education Act Title I English/Writing project was continued at two Phoenix Union high schools, Carl Hayden and North High Schools, in 1974-75. Although the objectives and instructional method (individualized, diagnostic, prescriptive approach) were the same at the two schools, the entry level skills and abilities of the students, as well as the instructional materials and procedures, were different. The past year, 1974-1975, was the first complete year for the Title I English/Writing Programs in the Phoenix Union High School System (Hss). This report presents the results of the English/Writing program on students' writing proficiencies. Two samples of students' writing were collected at the beginning of the course and again at the end of the course. The samples included unstructured personal writing and structured order letter writing. Random samples for rating by an independent rater were chosen from those students with a complete set of pre and post writing samples. It is concluded that students who were enrolled in Title I and Phoenix Union High School System English/Writing classes improved their personal and order letter writing skills. Compared to students in Phoenix Union High School System classes, students in Title I classes made greater gains in personal writing skills and similar gains in order letter writing skills.
