The Reading and Math Readiness Skills Program for Young Delayed Learners.
This is a report of a New York City school district educational project funded under Title l of the Elementary and Secondary Act of 1965 which provided a supplementary reading and mathematics readiness program for early childhood CRMD pupils ranging in age from five to seven. The major goal of the program was to increase the levels of student proficiency in these skill areas. Specific emphasis was placed on language and speech development, motor coordination, self-expression, and self-help activities and work habits. Thirty classes in eleven schools representing the five boroughs participated in the program. Nineteen para-professionals conducted small group activities and individualized instructional sessions under the supervision of the classroom teacher. Program supervision was provided by a project coordinator. Alternate forms of the Metropolitan Readiness Test were administered as pre and posttests. An analysis of the data revealed that students made statistically significant gains in their reading and mathematics skills. Program activity observations and staff interviews were used to evaluate this project. It met its objectives successfully. (Author/BS)
