Chapter 1 Instructional Program Final Report 1989/90.
Nechworth, John; And Others
This report examines the impact of instructional programs funded under Chapter 1 of the Education Consolidation and Improvement Act on the academic achievement of students served in the Houston (Texas) Independent School District during the 1989-90 school year. The Chapter 1 programs provided supplemental remedial instruction in reading/language arts, mathematics, English as a second language (ESL), and bilingual education for elementary school pupils who are economically and educationally disadvantaged. Instruction was provided through either a reach-in model or a regroup model, or through a combination of these approaches; in addition, extended-day classes were available on several campuses. The specific tasks for this inquiry were the following: (1) to describe Chapter 1 instructional programs as implemented within schoolwide and nonschoolwide instructional models; (2) to compare the impact of schoolwide and nonschoolwide approaches on reading/language arts instruction; (3) to compare the impact of schoolwide and nonschoolwide approaches on mathematics instruction; and (4) to evaluate the impact of Chapter 1 instruction on individual students by determining the number of students who moved closer to the non-Chapter 1 population on measures of academic achievement. Eight research questions are addressed and three recommendations offered. Statistical data are presented in 10 tables. (AF)
