Teacher Training and Tutorial Program in Reading; Evaluation Period, School Year 1975-1976.
Rosenblatt, Sidney M.
This report evaluates the the teacher training and tutorial program in reading in New York City. The program was designed to offer after school instruction in 13 elementary schools and 4 junior high schools. Three hundred ninety elementary school students and 120 junior high students in grades two through nine participated in the program. Tutorial classes met once or twice a week for a total of two hours with the exception of one junior high school where students met in the morning before the start of regular classes. The program was administered by teachers, paraprofessionals, and high school students who provided individual tutoring for two or three students. The major objective of the evaluation was to determine if, as a result of participation in the program, there was significant improvement in reading comprehension skills. All students were given alternate forms of the Stanford Diagnostic Test on a pre and post-test basis. The report concluded that the tutorial program in reading was successful in the fourth, sixth, and seventh grades. There was growth in the second, third, fifth, eighth, and ninth grades but these grades did not show significant gains. (Author/JP)
