Originally supported by Title I, this project is designed to provide remedial instruction in reading and arithmetic to underachieving children in schools serving low economic level suburban areas. Participants enrolled in the project in kindergarten through grade 8 have placed in the lowest quartile in either reading or math in the chosen normative test. Elements of the project include colorful classroom size laboratories, newest high interest instructional materials and teaching machines. Major emphasis is placed on diagnosis of learning problems, prescribing for individual learning, offering instruction in a lab and employing part time veteran teachers as well as instructional assistants and parents. In this project students participate in daily half hour sessions on a ratio of about three students to one teacher. Students work at their own pace on materials geared to their own diagnosed needs and abilities. Their progress is measured by continuous criterion referenced testing as well as pre and post testing on normative tests. A descriptive list of sources for instructional materials in reading and math is included. (Author/AM)
