This project fo­cuses on de­vel­op­ing and im­ple­ment­ing an out­comes-based read­ing pro­gram for the Barangay Dagatan Read­ing Cen­ter in Lipa City, Batan­gas. More­over, the project adopted the idea of the Out­comes-Based Read­ing Pro­gram de­vel­oped by the California Li­brary As­so­ci­a­tion with the aid of a Read­ing Blue­print de­signed for this read­ing pro­gram. The read­ing au­di­ence and pro­gram par­tic­i­pants were se­lected based on Chall’s Stages of De­vel­op­men­tal Read­ing and the Read­ing for Learn­ing the New (Stage 3: 9 to 13 years old). The en­tire pro­gram was guided by a blue­print and de­tailed les­son plans doc­u­ment­ing all the pre­and post-read­ing ac­tiv­i­ties in each ses­sion.

An in­for­ma­tion dis­sem­i­na­tion ac­tiv­ity was held last 26 March 2018 via posters and house-to-house ini­tia­tives of the barangay per­son­nel. The pre-registration of par­tic­i­pants was done to de­ter­mine the num­ber of pos­si­ble learn­ers.

The ac­tual read­ing ses­sion started from 10-13 April 2018 wherein each af­ter­noon ses­sion had a pre­pared read­ing les­son that the fa­cil­i­ta­tor must be able to de­liver to the par­tic­i­pants. Pre- and post-read­ing ac­tiv­i­ties were also pre­pared to test whether the par­tic­i­pants are able to fa­cil­i­tate learn­ing for each of the stated ex­pres­sive and in­struc­tional out­comes.

Based on the find­ings of the project, it re­vealed that its over­all im­ple­men­ta­tion was suc­cess­ful, and the com­mu­nity pos­i­tively re­sponded to it. For­tu­nately, there are plans al­ready com­ing from the City Li­brary to re-im­ple­ment the same pro­gram in other barangays’ read­ing cen­ters. Pro­pos­als to im­prove some of the chal­lenges en­coun­tered have also been rec­om­mended in the fu­ture.
