Teaching Reading in Compensatory Classes.
Calfee, Robert C., Ed.; Drum, Priscilla A., Ed.
This book examines the study of compensatory reading programs which was undertaken by the Educational Testing Service (ETS) at 537 schools, and presents the results in a format usable by administrators, legislators, and teachers. Chapters deal with the following topics: the compensatory reading survey; communities and schools; a profile of children in compensatory reading programs; teacher characteristics; organization for instruction; instructional procedures; selection and use of instructional materials; teacher attitudes; purposes, practices, and outcomes; teaching goals and teaching time; and an analysis of compensatory reading programs and their special features as a group. Included in the appendix are questionnaires regarding the school principal's perceptions, teacher characteristics, and class and program characteristics. (DF)
