A Program for Reading and Language Development. An Adopter's Guide.
Carter, Nancy Hay
"Project SAILS" (Symbolic and Innovative Language Systems) is a special program developed by the Portland, Oregon, public schools for training teachers to work with children who have learning and reading difficulties. Teachers are instructed in the use of the Monterey Reading and Language Programs, highly structured and highly accountable learning programs that "track" each student's daily performance to ensure regular progress in language and reading ability. The manual that developed from "Project SAILS" is intended to serve as a guide to this new educational concept, and to help others replicate the activities that the Portland schools have successfully used. The manual outlines the methods for obtaining the programed materials, training support personnel, and developing learning centers to give more children fast, effective remedial help. Appendixes in the manual provide a price list for the Monterey program, statistics from Monterey reading program sites, and performance graphs for "Project SAILS." (RL)
