IGE and the Multi-Unit School: An Examination of Its Influence on an Upper Elementary Reading Program.
Pribble, Donald A.; Stephens, Elaine
Individually Guided Education (IGE) in a Multi-Init School (MUS-E) is a comprehensive model for organizing an elementary school. This system incorporates non-graded multi-aged grouping, shared decisionmaking, differentiated staffing, a team approach, and instructional programming based on individual student needs. The purpose of this study was to examine the effects of applying the IGE/MUS-E concepts to an upper elementary reading program consisting of 140 pupils in need of remediation. A team approach was used to design reading instruction, including a specific skills instruction period and an interest center period in which those skills could be applied. At the end of one year, mean word recognition test scores, mean comprehension scores and mean total reading scores as measured by the Metropolitan Reading Test showed over one year in growth. An improvement in self-concept, skill level, and attitude toward reading was noted. No statistical controls were used. (KS)
