Newark Board of Education, NJ.
This compilation presents material related to Project Read-Write, a basic skills program for grades 2-7 which utilizes students' attitudes and experiences and is designed to promote total reading comprehension through writing. It is noted in the compilation that although the program was developed in an urban area (Newark, New Jersey), it can be supplied in suburban and rural areas as well. The first section of the compilation presents a description of the project. Sections of the "Teacher's Resource and Instructional Manual" associated with the project are included. The next section presents sample teaching strategies concerning building sight vocabulary, main idea, event sequence, character analysis, and mood. The final section of the compilation presents a research report conducted with 3,000 students across 6 grades and 174 classes during 2 years concerning the effectiveness of the project, noting that Read-Write students (including Chapter I students) significantly outperformed the norm group on a standardized measure of reading comprehension.
