Reading Achievement Task Force. Final Report.
West Virginia State Dept. of Education, Charleston.
In June 1975, a reading-achievement task force was commissioned to produce a plan for improving reading achievement in West Virginia. This report describes the background and method of work adopted by the task force and presents a detailed set of objectives as a framework for action to improve reading achievement in the state. The objectives focus on establishing the teaching of reading and other basic communication skills as a priority in elementary schools, developing procedures which will insure the implementation of teaching practices which concentrate in these areas, providing programs for parents to clarify their role in developing and supporting reading skills, revising training and certification standards for kindergarten through eighth grade, and facilitating and disseminating research related to reading achievement in the state. Each objective is accompanied by a detailed list of steps in implementation, specification of responsible agency, and budget objectives. Appendixes provide further information on reading achievement in the state, methods of work adopted by the task force, and data collected and analyzed for the study. (AA)
