An Evaluation of the 1977-1978 Title I ESEA Program for Community School District No. 4.
Fox, Robert A.; Hurwitz, Ted
This evaluation focuses on Title I programs implemented in 26 public and private schools in Community School District 4, a predominantly Hispanic and black district located on Manhattan's upper east side. The various programs examined include: (1) the High Intensity Learning System Reading Program for elementary and junior high grades; (2) the THINK program (comprising reading instruction and language analysis) in junior high schools; and (3) reading, English as a Second Language, and mathematics programs implemented in the six private schools receiving funds. Each program is described in terms of objectives, target population, staffing and strategies. Evaluation procedures are discussed. Findings from observations, interviews, and questionnaires and data on student achievement gains under the different programs are also presented. Appended to the report are copies of observation checklists used in the evaluation, questionnaires administered to teachers and paraprofessionals, and an analysis of the evaluation's historical regression design.
