dc.description.abstract In developing countries like Ghana, low literacy rates and high poverty especially in rural areas tend to go hand in hand. Efforts to solve this problem of low levels of literacy have mainly been along the lines of out of school instruction, popularly called ‘extra classes’ in Ghana. This paper examines how a Customized Classroom Literacy Acceleration Program (CCLAP) woven into the general education curriculum, thus implemented during regular classroom hours improves literacy in a small underprivileged school in Berekuso. The findings indicate an improvement in literacy of second graders provided some targeted instruction as part of the general curriculum. This paper concludes with recommendations for further research involving more learners, classrooms and subject areas. en_US
