C.H.A.P (Chapter 1 and Special Education Helping At-Risk Programs.
McKinley, DonnaIrene
This paper describes a pilot project designed to facilitate coordination among Chapter 1, Pennsylvania Special Education, and Pennsylvania Regular Education services, with the goal of providing a more integrated support system for students. The project, named C.H.A.P. (for Chapter 1 Special Education Helping At-risk Programs), served 282 educators and 105 students. Its most prominent aspects during the 1991-1992 school year were classroom demonstrations, program improvement, and a special collaborative project. The on-site classroom demonstrations illustrated techniques in teaching oral reading fluency, reading comprehension, vocabulary development, prewriting activities, study skills, following directions, and individualization. Program improvement was effected by phone consultations and program sessions on cooperative teacher planning, team teaching, and alignment with regular education. A specific 6-week project attempted to assist a second grade teacher working with 15 students at risk of failure in her homogeneously grouped reading class. The project focused on developing teaching strategies that would maximize the students' academically engaged time. Substantial progress in students' skills in word recognition, word meaning, and reading fluency were reported. (DB)
