[Review As You Go: Oklahoma City Public Schools' Plan Using Saxon's Procedures.]
Hartzler, Stan
This document consists of three related items. The first brief paper describes the components of a cumulative daily review program and its origins, rationale, and outcomes. The review-as-you-go (RAYG) format entails planning cumulative examinations and providing review problems each day. The procedure once was routinely used; today it is exemplified in textbooks by Saxon and by Rhoad et al. The rationale is based on research that study followed by sleep followed by examination produces better achievement. The benefits of a RAYG approach are more pronounced for students of lower ability. Teaching, skill learning and retention, conceptual understanding, and new discovery can all be expected to improve with use of RAYG. Five suggestions for teachers are noted, and 14 references are included. The second paper describes procedures for the Oklahoma City Public Schools when using Saxon's books, and a model for structuring the algebra course based on Saxon's algebra books. The third paper is a test for grade 7 incorporating RAYG. (MNS)
