Shining stars : first graders learn to read : how parents can help their first graders learn to read by Elizabeth Goldman( Book )

11 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 1,046 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This guide begins with a story about a second to third grade reader named Jason. The story is written from the perspective of Jason's mother, and models ways his mother helps him and his brother expand their basic reading skills now that they have grown beyond early reading. One way is providing a special reading chair where Jason can comfortably curl up and enjoy his favorite books about ancient Egypt. From reading about archeology, Jason has increased his vocabulary to include more complex words such as artifacts, excavation, and observation. Now that Jason is older, he has learned to sound out new words, and look up their meanings alone, and with his older brother's help. Some suggestions are offered in this guide for helping second and third grade readers develop habits of good readers, such as taking children to the library regularly, letting them choose their own books, and helping them read more difficult materials on subjects that they are truly interested in learning about. Another way parents can help second and third graders is to discuss concepts they may be able to read about, but may not necessarily fully understand, such as reading maps. Included is a story about mummies and list of questions parents might ask their second and third graders about the story to stimulate a thoughtful discussion, and prepare their children for fourth grade where students begin to read to learn rather than learn to read. The discussion questions could easily be adapted to any subject a child might wish to read about. A check list is provided which will help parents evaluate their child's reading progress.

Strategies for keeping kids in school : evaluation of dropout prevention and reentry projects in vocational education : final report by Becky Jon Hayward( Book )

2 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 341 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An evaluation was conducted of a 3-year demonstration program the purpose of which was to demonstrate the efficacy of projects that included vocational education as a key component in encouraging at-risk youth to remain in or return to school. Six of the 10 project grantees, funded under the Cooperative Demonstration Program of the Carl D. Perkins Vocational Education Act, were evaluated, using process and outcome information from 12 localities. The study found that only one-third of the projects achieved significant reduction in the number of participants who dropped out of school. Projects were generally more successful, however, in improving participants' school performance and affiliation, with 10 of the 12 demonstrating increases in participants' grade point average, 7 showing reduction in number of courses failed, and 7 showing improvements in participants' perceptions of the safety of their school environment. Among the components that appeared to be critical for improving the persistence and educational success of at-risk youth are the following: (1) a smaller, more personal environment, such as that available in the school-within-a-school and alternative school environments; (2) a structured environment that includes clear and equitably enforced behavioral expectations; (3) vocational education that integrates academic education and leads to good entry-level jobs or continued training at the postsecondary level; (4) formal, ongoing coordination of the academic and vocational components of participants' high school programs; (5) a formal counseling component that incorporates attention to personal issues along with career counseling, employability and life skills instruction; and (6) personal, supportive attention from adults through mentoring or similar projects. (The report includes separate evaluations of each site, 13 tables, and 3 appendixes that report on the study methodology.) (Kc)

Chapter 1 Schoolwide Project Study : final report by E. Allen Schenck( Book )

3 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 247 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Chapter 1 schoolwide projects are intended to serve educationally disadvantaged students by improving the instructional program provided to all students in high-poverty schools. This report provides a comprehensive look at schoolwide projects in the 1991-92 school year, using data from surveys of all schoolwide project schools. The response rate was 93 percent for school district questionnaires and 91 percent for school building questionnaires. Site visits to six project sites provided additional information. Chapter 1 schools tend to be located in large urban, high-poverty school districts with a high proportion of minority students. Eighty percent of students in project schools are Black or Hispanic, and 20 percent are Limited English Proficient. Schools have implemented schoolwide projects to be able to serve more students with more flexibility in use of resources as well as to avoid restrictions on service delivery. The most popular strategies for schoolwide projects included parent education and involvement projects, staff development, and computer assisted instruction. It appears that the schoolwide projects approach is leading to better achievement gains by educationally disadvantaged students. Thirty-three tables present survey findings. Five appendixes present survey questions and methodology, tabulations of responses, and a discussion of common themes. (Sld)
