An Analysis of the Effectiveness of a Competency-Based Strategy in the Improvement of Reading Instruction.
Hart, Patricia Joyce; Marlowe, Athelene Payne
In an effort to increase student achievement in reading, increase teacher competency in reading instruction, and increase parental involvement in the school, a project (Improved Reading Instruction Schoolwide) was developed to provide an intensive college-level, two-year inservice training program for the teachers and principal in one elementary school. Workshops were also given to the parents, and classroom observations were encouraged. Mastery teaching techniques were used to provide a differentiated curriculum. Teachers were provided performance based development strategies that included diagnostic strategies, monitoring systems, instructional strategies, independent learning strategies, and classroom management strategies. (Described are the major components of the project and appended are the program proposal, objectives and strategies, and criteria for evaluating a developmental lesson plan.) (HOD)
