Summary

The District 21, 1978-79 Title I Reading Program had three basic components: (1) Augmented Reading Services, (2) Optional Assignment, and (3) Non Public Schools. The Augmented Reading Services component operated in six elementary schools, reaching a total of more than 1,300 students defined as below minimum competency and unserved by other programs. This component utilized a diagnostic/prescriptive approach and individual or small group instruction. Its effectiveness is reflected in the high ratios of actual to expected mean gains for program participants at each grade level. The Optional Assignment component served more than 300 educationally disadvantaged students in twelve non-Title I elementary schools. Like the first component, Optional Assignment showed greater than expected mean achievement gains at every grade level. A supplementary program, Impact Aid, made it possible for Augmented Reading Services and Optional Assignment to effectively serve an additional 245 students. The final component of the program was one in which paraprofessionals worked together with teachers assigned to three non-public schools located in District 21. Their efforts were helpful in providing individualization of instruction. Overall, the strength of the Title I reading program may be attributed to the small group instruction. Its effectiveness is reflected in the dedication of teachers and paraprofessionals and effective utilization of individualized, diagnostic/prescriptive instruction. (Author/GC)
