Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 27, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta 12 THE LETHBRIDQE HERALD Thurtdiy, Ftbriwry 27, 1975 Pupil literacy problem concerns city teacher By JIM GRANT Herald Staff Writer The literacy problem in junior and senior high schools is not restricted to the students on the lower end of the academic scale, a Lethbridge educator told the Southeastern Alberta Teachers Convention in Medicine Hat today. In a prepared text released to The Herald prior to the convention, Wilson Junior High School language arts co ordinator Bob Tarleck blamed the literacy problem, in part, on assumptive teaching. "Assumptive teaching takes place every time a teacher sends one student or a class to the library to complete a research task without first determining whether the students possess all of the re- quisite skills" needed to per- form the task. "It is my fear that there is a great deal of assumptive teaching taking place in our schools Mr. Tarleck states. He is particularly concern- ed about students' inability to effectively complete work study tasks because they lack the skills to do so. Research study skills are those needed to know how to locate information, analyse it and select the material need- ed to fulfill the task under- taken. Such skills also include effective note taking. While outlining the critical importance of research study skills in the process of ob- taining academic success, Mr. Tarleck suggested instruction to develop such skills in secon- dary school students is "at best ineffectual and at worst non existent." Despite teachers being torn by the changes in direction in education during the past decade, the Wilson Junior High School teacher told the convention teachers are in a position to alleviate the literacy problem. He recommended that they return to a systematic approach to teaching that Winter's retreat With the continued mild weather, the ice on the Oldman River is be- ginning to yield to the water's flow. emphasizes the use of planned homework assignments. "I am led to the conclusion that systematic instruction in research study skills results in higher levels of skill and content mastery than takes place with incidental learning. It is true that the situation in our classroom may be desperate. But it is no less true that a systematic attack on the problem can significantly improve he advised. Mr. Tarleck, also a Lethbridge alderman, said some of the improvements promised by the changes ad- vocated and put into practice during the' 1960s have not materialized and teachers are now faced with doing something about it. "Today there is a chorus of parents, employers, teachers and, yes, even students voic- ing concern about the need for our schools to up grade instruction in reading, com- position, spelling, mathematics and a number of other basic skills." He claimed it is now even obvious to the manufacturers of educational hardware that lhe Lethbndge Public School Board will hold its dis- the problems facing the cussions on the 1975 budget for public schools in an open classrooms today cannot be meeting Saturday at its central office. solved by school boards staff- The board will be faced with making a decision on eight new ing schools with "electronic programs when it attempts to balance the budget. clowns" and other audio The meeting is set for 9 a.m. visual gimmicks School budget meeting open rolling luk.DlvMwt No. >1 Comprising (hit pirt ol City ol lying South ol th8 lint of 18th South, Easl ol the Cinlre line ol !7lh Slrtel South Si 3' 16lh Averlue South botweenirth Street South and the 18ih Street South, and north ol the Centre line of I9in Avenue South between 18th Street South and 20th Street South Wosl pi Ihe Centre line ol 20lh Street South, all In Township 8, Banoe 21 West of Ihe 4lh Meridian. w Polling f tatlvn it Agnaa Davldion School 20th .mi 21 it South Polling No. 92 STonsih Avi PaV IS" Ci" lying South of the Centre KI 11?

Polling Station at Agnai Davidson School 20th Slreat and 21.1 Av.nuo South Games involved time, not trouble Lethbridge city police of- ficers put in roughly 800 extra man: hours during the Winter Games. What were the Games like from a police point of view? Quiet, no problems' No in- cidents. City police chief Ralph Michelson said he checked with other areas where similar major events look place in the past to see what types of problems arose. "We were prepared for problems in areas such as li- quor offences, drugs, thefts, disturbances and willful, damage we had the chief said. He added the lack of trouble during the Games can't be attributed only to the over- .time put in by constables but credit for the general "civil" attitude during the Games should go to those who plann- ed the Games and spread the events around Southern Alber- ta. "It also speaks well of the people in general, the visitors to this area and the people who live said Chief Michelson. He attributed most of the extra man hours to policing athletic events and controlling increased traffic. "There were practically no complaints associated with the Games, except reports of stolen winter games he said. Most reports, he added, came toward the end of the Games and generally speak- ing the "thefts" involved souvenir hunters. Some flags started disappearing before the Games even started and in a few cases charges were laid. Insp. A. J. Niedzwiecki, head of Lethbridge RCMP subdivision, agreed with city police chief Michelson. "No problems, no incidents requiring police action everything went very well. It was very the inspector said. Just as city police had extra man hours, RCMP officers in Lethbridge and at various venues had an extra workload, coping with additional traffic and attending events for nor- mal policing purposes. Transit revenue, deficit up City Transit department revenues were up 32 per cent in 1974 over 1973, figures com- piled for the department's year end report show. The system collected revenues of in 1974 compared to in 1973. Fares were increased from 10 to 15 cents midway through 1973, accounting for part of the increase. But revenue from school bus and charter operations increased the most in 1974, to from in 1973. Revenue from fares increased to from The number of passengers carried showed a slight decline in 1974 with passenger trips recorded com- pared to in 1973. Expenditures also were up to from in 1973, resulting in a 1974 deficit of A large portion of the deficit is now being met by a provincial government operating subsidy of per capita.
