First Grade Pilot Project.
Tutalo, Anthony J.
This document describes the development, implementation, and evaluation of a program aimed at increasing the level of achievement of first-grade students at the Edmund W. Flynn Model Elementary School. The diagnostic and placement procedure developed allowed for student placement in programs aimed at individual strength while providing remediation in areas of weakness. Programs were developed to respond to identified needs. Included in the document are sections on parent orientation sessions, the screening program, student placement, visual and aural reading approaches, remediation programs and parent activities, including a parent-reading workshop. There is a formative and summative evaluation of the program. Appendices include questionnaire forms; descriptions of community agencies; test results; and tables which correlate specific objectives, methods to obtain objectives, and evaluative procedures for the visual program.
