Strategic Reading Project. Pilot.
North Central Regional Educational Lab., Elmhurst, IL.
This compilation explains the Strategic Reading Project (SRP), a long-term staff development project for schools committed to improving their students' ability to read strategically. Noting that the SRP has been designed for elementary schools, the compilation points out that the project is adaptable to high schools. The Project Team Notebook in the compilation is the guide to project planning, implementation, and evaluation, and consists of four parts: Part 1 presents an overview of SRP, its goals and approach, and its print, audio, and video resources; Part 2 covers the "nuts and bolts" of planning, implementation, and evaluation; the set of planning, implementation, and evaluation "tools"--checklists, surveys, and frameworks--are reproduced in Part 3; and Part 4 consists of six staff development units (on strategic reading and teaching, prior knowledge, inferencing, text structure, word meaning, and metacognition). An extensive reference section includes video and audio resources as well as print. Two appendixes present an annotated bibliography on the staff development processes and strategies used in SRP, and a description of how two or more schools can use a variety of telecommunication technologies to collaborate on SRP "at a distance." The compilation includes an introductory videotape and two audiotapes. (RS)
