A Descriptive Analysis Of Eight Remedial Reading Students In The Sevier District Schools, Doris P. Tuft May 1966

A Descriptive Analysis Of Eight Remedial Reading Students In The Sevier District Schools, Doris P. Tuft

All Graduate Plan B and other Reports

Authorities have variously estimated the number of children with a reading disability to be between ten and fifteen percent of the total school population.1,2,3 Formerly, many children who had reading difficulties perhaps left school at an early age. Also, many children who might have had reading problems perhaps remained undetected before widespread group testing was initiated. Today, with the high premium placed upon high school and even college achievement, an education is, so to speak, a prerequisite to adult success. With reading unique in its being both a subject area and a tool necessary for the mastery ...

A Study Of The Extent Of Extramural Competition For Girls In The High Schools Of Utah, Betty Ann Dance

All Graduate Theses and Dissertations

Physical education is included as a part of the curriculum in most secondary schools throughout the United States. Since it is usually required for at least one year, and possibly more in some schools, it is important to design the program properly. A well-rounded physical education program is established to include three phases: the instructional phase, the intramural phase, and the extramural phase.

A Study Of The Extent To Which Further Consolidation Is Feasible And Desirable Within Selected County School Districts In Utah, Walter D. Talbot May 1966

A Study Of The Extent To Which Further Consolidation Is Feasible And Desirable Within Selected County School Districts In Utah, Walter D. Talbot

All Graduate Theses and Dissertations

Under the mandator consolidation act of 1915, the county-unit school district in Utah had its beginning (10). Although, through this consolidation movement, many small school districts were combined into larger ones, the elimination of the small districts did not, necessarily, provide for the elimination of the small schools. Due to several factors including distance, poor communication and transportation facilities, and a strong desire on the part of the people who lived in small communities for a voice in school matters, the consolidation of school attendance areas did not keep pace with school district reorganization.

With the improvement of highways and ...

An Exploration Of Test Taking Strategy With Sixth Grade Students, Mary Bates May 1966

An Exploration Of Test Taking Strategy With Sixth Grade Students, Mary Bates

All Graduate Plan B and other Reports

The present study was an attempt to evaluate the benefits of certain cues in reaching correct answers to test questions given to sixth grade students. While it seems reasonable to assume that test-taking strategy is not as well developed in sixth grade children as in older students, this study was intended to discover if test-taking strategy would be apparent to a measurable degree at this age level. Before such an observation could be undertaken, a technique had to be devised to measure the behavior in question (in this case the use of cues). The technique used was in the form ...

Team Teaching In Secondary School Science: Techniqeus In Large And Small Group Instruction And The Use Of Para-Professionals, Berlin C. Jensen

All Graduate Plan B and other Reports

In team teaching there are considerations that are basic to conducting a successful learning experience. In large and small group instruction certain techniques are used that can reduce the tension and anxiety of the team teacher. Just how these techniques are used will vary for the individual team teacher. How to secure and use para-professionals are also basic considerations in a team teaching program. According to this survey certain techniques can be effectively used in large groups (1). The school plant itself has undergone a remarkable change, Newly constructed schools can now accommodate larger and more effective classes, or the ...

History Of Snow College 1932-1951, Lee R. Thompson

All Graduate Plan B and other Reports

Knowing the past provides many of the ingredients that help to make conditions as they are today and as they might become tomorrow, the author became interested in these ingredients which helped to develop the educational institution known as Snow College. This search for knowledge led the writer to believe there was also a need to preserve some basic factual information about this school and present it as a history. This project, therefore, becomes an effort in the development of such a historical document.

The problem has been the subject of research studies and many opinion articles.

The Iron County School District, Cedar City, Utah, has advocated a policy of careful evaluation for each child considered for nonpromotion . The philosophy of the district which advocates adjusting instruction to meet individual differences should eliminate, except in rare ...
