INDIVIDUAIMD, NONGkADED READING PROGRAMIntroductionThis packet consists of materials developed by the team with the help of theReading Consultant.It is composed of a narrative of the philosophy and a descrip-tion of the elements in the program.A brief description of the on-going program isfollowed by a bibliography of reading authorities' writings which have been utilizedin the program development.A scope and sequence of word recognition skills andrecord keeping materials for operation of the program are also included.The Title III Project, Curriculum Change Through Nongraded Individualization;"CCTNI," has established the primary goal of developing and adapting curriculum inreading to the individual needs and capacities of children and that of helping themmhecontinuous, consistent progress toward goals established through assessmentprocesses.It is important in such a program that diagnosis, assessment, and pres-cription of the reading program be made to meet the individual needs of children, inorder to provide for successful operation of the student at each step.The develop-ment of positive self-esteem and confidence in his ability to succeed at each stepin the program is vital to optimum learning.Many different methods and approaches are used in the total reading program tocompliment the learning strengths of the individual students.However, the projecthas been conducted in such a way as to make this a program financially within thereach of any school.Nongrading and team teaching with a differentiated staff areviewed as vertical and horizontal organizational patterns making possible the implementing of such a program.44

Philosophl. of Reading. ProgramUnderlying the philosophy of the reading program is the recognition that readingis a thought process.Reading takes the child beyond the interpretation and meaningintended by the author and stimulates his own thinking processes.The final goal ofa sound reading program is to develop a child to a point where he loves to read,-- where he seeks reading in solution to problems, where he uses reading to stimulaterealistic thinking or reasoning, where he seeks pleasurable respite in imaginativefiction, and benefits from each experience in the process.Learning to read is a very individualized is different for each child launching into the processThe task of learning toas different as thepersonality and background of experience of each child is different.The child suc-ceeds to the degree that the instructional program is built upon his previous learnings, capitalizing upon his strengths, his own language patterns and what he alreadyknows about his world.These are the assets which each child brings to the exper-ience of learning to read whether he is a beginner or in the fourth year of thenongraded program.The starting point for teaching reading skills is of paramount importance.Thecontributions which each child brings to the process of learning to read are hisknowledge of the world around him and his personal language patterns, whatever theymay beThese are his assets, his strengths, and his foundations for new learning.The framework of the instructional program must be adjusted to the capabilities ofeach child, and within the realm of his understanding, rather than the canned experiences of Dick and Jane's world whose cultural environment may be foreign and verydifferent from that of many children.Thus, the underprivileged, the gifted, theslow learner, the average child -- each enters the learning situation within the5

security of his own experience.Success in learning to read is then measuredby the only true dimension, the child, himself, and his experiences.Current achievements and accomplishments become the doorway, or springboard,for new experiences, new vocabulary and progressive learning.The child's pres-ent learning cannot be allowed to set for all time the limits of what he can door what he can become.The flexible instructional program which develops fromthe framework of his experience provides many opportunities for him to chooseand to shape his own destiny through varied activities and an abundance of instructional materials,Skillful diagnosis and diagnostic teaching proceduresaid teachers in identifying each child's learning style, his strengths andweaknesses fn learning situations.This information is the basis for prescrip-tive programs used to reinforce each step in the learning sequence of reading.There are no preconceived advancement blocks or rigid formulas to prohibitachild from developing at a rate or in a direction which is different from hispeers.There is time and space for each child to progress at a rate commensur-ate with his capabilities,Team teaching with differentiated staff assignments provides a frameworkfor sharing expertise, exchanging information about children and teaching materials and for organizing children according to need groups.More time forworking individually with children can be provided through differentiated staffassignments without an increase in educational expenditures.childrenNongrading ofthe mixing of children from five years of age through 8 years ofage - releases children from pre-conceived ideas that they must achieve specified levels in reading (and no higher) and allows them to progress in successive, successful steps through skill developing activities which are individualized according to each child's learning styles and needs.Many types of66

resource materials are required in meeting the varied needs and interests ofchildren in such a program.specific skills.Specialized teaching packets are prepared to teachTesting devices measure step-by-step progress through wordrecognition and other measurable skills.The classroom environment emerging from the individualized reading programencourages each child to develop self-reliance and responsibility for learning.Pupils who are self-reliant and responsible are free to make mistakes, free tobe creative, free to be curious, free to be different, free to struggle and tolearn.They learn how to work in an atmosphere that is challenging rather thanthreatening.In this environment a certain amount of self-disciplining isrequired in order that freedom and learning be maintained.The nongraded grouping of children in the Individualized Reading Programis flexible and open to change and improvement.By skillful observation ofeach child's performance and through honest searching for the best use of theassets of each child, assessment and evaluation information can be used asstepping stones for further learning.An adequate reading program which isindividualized can be maintained for each child at all reading levels.II.Outline of the Elements of the Individualized, Nongraded-ReadiTg'Program,A.Pre-Reading Experiences1.Development of positive attitudes and feelings toward self2.Sensory-motor integration to develop body balance and physicalskills3.Visual discrimination in recognizing likenesses, differencesand various relationships77

transformation,Therefore, the reading program begins with physicalinvolvement wherever possible,Experiences are the building blocksfor the young child in processing information and relating ideas toothers.Movement and verbalization are basic to the learning exper-iences of this level,2.Visual DiscriminationActivities are provided to develop visual skills, in making thetransition from distance seeing to near-point seeing, seeing objectsin various positions or forms, figure-ground discrimination, positionin space and spatial relationsChildren can be helped to train theirvisual skills in training them to remember, making meaningful associations, using information, etc.Children are given experiencesdetecting likenesses and differences, in sorting according to size orcondition, purpose or destination, arranging according to relationships, or adjustment.Children are also given experiences organizingthings and ideas into units according to relationships, or types,kinds, uses, or species.These experiences help the child to dealmore adequately with the physical world, also with the intellectualworld of words and ideas, and to relate these ideas into language.3.Auditory DiscriminationAt the pre-reading level most children have developed the foundation for phonetic analysis training.They have learned much aboutauditory discrimination of words and many sounds.The school programbegins with the children preceiving likenesses and differences innon-vocal sounds and hearing the sound of recurring rhyming words,110 11

and contrasting them with words that do not rhyme:The children aretaught that many words can begin with the same sound.Many activi-ties are provided that permit frequent and varied repetition, tocapture much rhythmic movement, alliteration and voice modulation togive breadth and interest in acquiring the skill of understanding howwords are different.4,Oral ExpressionThis phase of the program includes the recognition of immaturespeech patterns of some young children.speech correction therapy,Some youngsters will requireCareless speech habits reflect inadequateauditory discrimination and thus indicate to the teacher the need forspecific training in auditory discrimination.Activities are struc-tured to teach correct sounding of initial consonants and consonantblends.Facility in ability to express himself well orally is consideredan index to the child's potential for learning to read.In this con-sideration the teacher evaluates the quality of ideas expressed, useof vocabulary, ability to express ideas and the mastery of sentencestructure.The language patterns used by children of this age arebasically the same as those he has been hearing.The language spokenvaries according to socio-economic, ethnic and linguistic group characteristics of the geographical area he represents.The level oforal expression of the child indicates the point of beginning instruction in pre-reading experiences.The individuality of each child isrecognized as he progresses into reading experiences.126'112

B.Language ExperienceReading is taught as a communication process, as an aid in understanding and relating to others, not as a memorization process of parroting thewords of Dick and Jane.Meaning is the important element of this program.The oral language of the individual child becomes the text for his'beginning reading program.His vocabulary and concepts are the foundation ofmeaningful communication. .What children say is written down in a dictatedstory which they in turn can read.The language of the pupil's experiencesmake up his individual sight vocabulary with which he launches into moreformal reading,Subsequent skills are taught and paced at the rate atwhich each individual child can assimilate and use.The dictated storyplan is continued until it levels off into creative writng activities.C.Expanding Reading VncabularyBy theime the pupil has dictated about twenty story accounts andlearned the vocabulary of each, he is ready to expand into broader readingexperiences.Pre-test, teach, post-test procedures are followed to insureindividual progress through the sequence of skills,As the pupil's readingvocabulary grows, his reading instruction is expanded to include basalreading materials,Pre-primer and primer level stories of several differentseries are used to extend reading experiences, build confidence and toreinforce beginning reading skills.As the reading vocabulary approachesthe first reader level the children are directed, individually and insmall groups, into directed reading-thinking activities.Reading for in-formation becomes a basic component of his reading experiences.Thinking,speaking, writing, reading are processes of communication and are fosteredand nurtured as such, not as separate skills taught in isolation from one13

another.Various supplementary materials are used to reinforce the basicreading skills.Word recognition training is provided through the use ofvarious techniques and media of specially prepared packets of materials.Other children's stories, materials of several series of basal readers,library books, and periodicals provide ample opportunity for the child toread widely and to expand his reading skills,D.Reading-Th4nking ActivitiesAs soon as the children of a small group are able to read preprimersthey are ready to participate in directed reading-thinking activities.children develop skillAsin this activity, individual children are guidedinto the individualized reading phase of the program.confused with "round-robin" type of reading.This is not to beThe directed reading-thinkingprocess guides the children in declaring purposes for reading; these willbe self-declared purposes, not imposed purposes of the teacher, or of s
