VanSciver, James H.; Fleetwood, Linda M.
Young Children, v52 n7 p16-18 Nov 1997
Describes a reworking of a Title 1 program in Lake Forest, Delaware schools, to eliminate first grade retention due to substandard level of reading ability. The process included: (1) making reading fun; (2) new reading material; (3) parental participation; (4) scheduled reading time; (5) reading requirements; and (6) teachers' aides in classrooms. Found that retention rates declined after implementation. (SD)
