Reading/Writing Immersion: A Decision Making Literacy Development Project: Teacher Interviews. Year Two.
Bravi, Gerald D.; And Others
A study evaluated the effectiveness of the second year of the first-grade teachers in becoming more effective at working with students who are at-risk of failing to develop the reading and writing performance expectancies the teachers held for them. Subjects, a first-grade teacher and a resource teacher from each of 4 schools in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, responded to a 15-question survey administered one-to-one concerning the processes used to accomplish the goals stipulated for Year Two of the project. Interview data were organized into 10 topic areas: (1) meetings; (2) professional skills; (3) university personnel; (4) inner city initiative and principal support; (5) classroom teacher-resource teacher relationships; (6) R/WI classroom activities; (7) R/WI expansion activities; (8) student progress; (9) school and classroom conditions needing change or improvement; and (10) continuation of the project. Results indicated that while there were some minor problems in the project, overall it was a success. Thirty recommendations were presented based on the interview data.
