Focus On Basics

Volume 6, Issue C ::: September 2003

This compares attendance information from this class (24 students total) in the Spring Semester to the same class with the four-day-a-week format in the fall, 2002. While we were using phonemic awareness principles in the two-day class, too much time elapsed between sessions and students were not feeling (or testing) progress. By switching to the four-day format, we were able to provide more intensity and students reported they felt like they were learning more.
