A Model for Establishing Programs to Stimulate Reading and Literacy [and] Checklist for Implementing a Model for Establishing Programs to Stimulate Reading and Literacy.
Leigh, Robert K.
One model that can serve as a guide for developing a reading program and for making necessary refinements to meet the specific needs of the school system served divides the stages of development into three phases. The first phase, program organization, deals with planning, implementing, and maintaining the program. In other words the first phase provides the form and structure of, reason for, and continuity of the reading program. Program operation, phase two, concerns the actual teaching-learning process and activates the plan. It applies the basic characteristics of an educative environment: respect for personality, participation in decision making, freedom of expression and availability of information, and mutuality of responsibility in defining goals, planning and conducting activities, and evaluating. Phase three, program evaluation, establishes the means to improve the program by identifying strengths, weaknesses, and appropriate actions. A checklist for implementing a model for establishing programs to stimulate reading and literacy is also included. (HOD)
