The Guide. Promising Practices in Pre-Elementary Right-to-Read Programs.
Ali, Yvonne B.; And Others
As part of a series of publications reporting the promising practices gleaned from pre-elementary Right to Read programs, this guidebook introduces its readers to the format used to describe the promising practices, provides statistical and descriptive information about the pre-elementary Right to Read programs, and describes each of the four manuals that report on the promising practices. The guide consists of an introduction and three sections. The introduction recounts the historical development of early childhood and kindergarten education and discusses factors related to the development of the guidebook series. The first section briefly describes the 37 pre-elementary programs that were in operation during the 1979 fiscal year. The second section identifies the Right to Read programs that contributed materials, activities, or products for inclusion in the series of handbooks, providing the titles and brief descriptions of the products when applicable. The third section describes each of the four manuals, noting their intended audiences and salient features. (RL)
