A Clinical/Support Reading Program for Secondary Schools.
Olson, Mary W.; Campbell, Aileen Oudega
Faced with a growing number of secondary school students reading below grade level, educators have begun to look for an effective program to improve reading ability and also meet the special needs of the older student. The clinical/support program recognizes that each student's developmental rate, reading capabilities, and interactions with his or her environment are unique. The program first identifies students with special reading needs, then develops student profiles in order to determine individual instructional plans. The cooperation of students, parents, and school personnel in decision making and goal setting before implementation of an instructional plan is essential to the program, as is evaluation of both student performance and program effectiveness. The program requires the services of a certified reading specialist who spends half of his or her time providing direct instruction and the remainder of the day in testing, planning, demonstration teaching, or record keeping. The specialist is assisted by a paraprofessional who is responsible for supervising students engaged in practice activities and recreational reading. (FL)
