The Up-Side of State Mandates: Moving the Reading Clinic to a High-Need School
Cirincione, Karen; Bosco, Diane
Language and Literacy Spectrum, v17 p40-46 2007
In order to comply with the New York State Education Department's (2000) recertification mandates for teacher education programs, the reading clinic of the Master of Science in Literacy Education program at Dowling College, Oakdale, New York was moved to a high-needs school district. This school district was seriously deficient in its pass rate on the NYS English Language Arts tests. The students were predominantly Hispanic, and the census index was 16. This article describes the steps taken to make this move and the challenges, as well as the benefits, of locating the reading clinic in a high-needs school.
