Remedial Reading and English Instruction for Junior High and High School Students: A Description of Common Practices in Teaching and Assessment.
Focusing on schools in southern California, Arizona, and Nevada, this report uses information from several sources, including surveys of school personnel and analyses of instructional and assessment materials, to document the common practices and effects of junior high and high school remedial reading and English instruction. The first two parts of the report treat the junior high and high school levels, respectively, with the presentation organized as follows: (1) an overview of practices in remedial instruction; (2) the structure of instruction, including students served, entry and termination skills, instructional time, facilities, and staff; and (3) the scope of instruction, including skills taught, materials, and general methods of instruction. The report concludes with a general discussion of the findings and a direction suggested for surveying the requirements for literacy at the start of training programs and employment. Appendixes include a list of skills and tasks from a sample district curriculum guide, a bibliography of remedial materials, and scores from graduation proficiency tests. (HTH)
