Thirty-two Varieties of Reading.
Stephens, Charles E.; Hendrickson, Leslie
A reading program evaluation was conducted by the school district of Eugene, Oregon, during the 1976-1977 school year. Three major questions were to be answered: (1) Are the district's elementary reading programs effective according to the district's reading scope and sequence? (2) What makes effective programs effective? (3) If programs are not effective, what can be done to make them effective? The committee agreed to concentrate on comprehension and vocabulary. The study was conducted through questionnaires, interviews, the study of standardized test scores, and classroom observation. The data were prepared as 32 individual reading reports, one for each school, each addressing reading instruction, factual and demographic data, and the strengths and weaknesses of each school's program. The reports were sent to the schools, and responses were invited. Major deletions or misinterpretations were corrected, and staff disagreements with the report were included as one-page additions to the reports without comment. (A sample report is included.) (TJ)
