The In-Class Instructional Model for Basic Skills Improvement in Grades K-6: A Resource Manual for Administrators, Supervisors and Teachers.
New Jersey State Dept. of Education, Trenton. Div. of Compensatory/Bilingual Education.
This resource manual for administrators, supervisors, and teachers was developed to foster the effective use of the in-class instructional model in basic skills improvement (BSI) programs in elementary schools. Funded by federal, state, and local sources, BSI programs are designed to be coordinated with school districts' developmental programs to provide supplementary remedial instruction in reading, writing, and mathematics to students needing compensatory education. Introductory materials in this manual cover BSI project designs, advantages of the in-class model, and factors affecting BSI student achievement. Subsequent discussion focuses on planning, implementing, and evaluating programs. Planning the use of the in-class model in kindergarten through sixth grades is discussed in terms of assessing, analyzing, and prioritizing needs. Discussion of implementing the in-class model centers on issues related to initial implementation and successful program operation. Evaluating the implementation of the in-class design is discussed in subsections on assessment techniques and formative and summative evaluation. An appendix provides resources for the elementary school in-class model, an annotated list of related New Jersey Department of Education publications, a list of nationally validated basic skills programs, and profiles of BSI programs reported in the literature.
