HELPING EDUCATIONALLY DISADVANTAGED CHILDREN.
MOORE, JAMES W.
PROJECT ABLE, IN ITS EFFORT TO AID DISADVANTAGED CHILDREN, WORKED WITH INTERMEDIATE GRADE CHILDREN OF LOW SOCIOECONOMIC BACKGROUND. THE PERSONNEL INVOLVED WERE CLASSROOM TEACHERS, GUIDANCE COUNSELORS, SCHOOL PSYCHOLOGISTS, AND READING TEACHERS. THE CHILDREN WERE HELPED THROUGH SUCH WAYS AS COUNSELING, REMEDIAL READING, ENRICHMENT ACTIVITIES, FIELD TRIPS, AND "TEAM TEACHING." PARENTS WERE ENCOURAGED TO SUPPORT THE PROJECT THROUGH HOME VISITS, SCHOOL CONFERENCES, AND MEETINGS. THE AIM OF THE PROJECT WAS TO ENCOURAGE THESE CHILDREN TO HAVE A MORE POSITIVE ATTITUDE ABOUT SCHOOL AND EDUCATION. AT THE END OF THE FIRST YEAR, RESULTS OF EXAMINATIONS SHOWED THAT THE ATTITUDES OF THE CHILDREN, AND THEIR PARENTS, HAD BECOME MORE POSITIVE.
