The First "R": A Report on the Effectiveness of Reading Instruction in the Eugene Public Schools. Volume Two.
Hendrickson, Les; And Others
This supplemental report concludes the analysis of data collected in response to a request by the Eugene (Oregon) school board for an assessment of reading instruction in the school district. The first section of the report examines materials and recordkeeping within the schools. Specifically it states what materials are used and how teachers rate them, what records are kept, how often these records are passed from one teacher to another, and where teachers get information about new materials and methods. The section concludes with a discussion about how difficult it is to read the most frequently used reading texts. The second section presents data on school instructional patterns including the number of students in reading groups, how long and how often these groups meet, who provides help to students with reading problems, and the use of scope and sequence materials. The third section provides summary data from classroom observations made during regularly scheduled reading periods; it includes data on both student and teacher behavior as well as on what classroom activities were supposed to be occuring. Appendixes contain a description of a discriminant analysis of the data, a teacher questionnaire, and observation code definitions. A glossary of terms is also included. (FL)
