REPORT OF COMMUNITY PROJECT COORDINATORS NOVEMBER 1961-JULY 1964.
GOLDMAN, JEANNE
THE COMMUNITY PROJECT COORDINATORS DEVELOPED PROGRAMS TO HELP CULTURALLY DISADVANTAGED CHILDREN ADJUST TO ELEMENTARY SCHOOL LIFE. THE GOAL IS TO HELP EACH CHILD ACHIEVE HIS BEST EDUCATIONAL LEVEL BY PROVIDING HIM WITH EXPERIENCES COMPENSATING FOR EARLIER DEPRIVATIONS, BUILDING A CURRICULUM ADJUSTED TO THE CHILD'S NEEDS, INVOLVING PARENTS, WORKING WITH OTHER PROFESSIONAL PERSONNEL, AND ASSISTING THE COMMUNITY TO IDENTIFY ITS NEEDS IN BUILDING PROGRAMS TO FURTHER THE EDUCATIONAL GROWTH OF CHILDREN. THE PRESCHOOLS ARE DIRECTED BY TRAINED TEACHERS, REQUIRE THE PARTICIPATION OF MOTHERS, AND UTILIZE VOLUNTEERS IN VARIOUS CAPACITIES. THESE PRESCHOOLS PROVIDE EXPERIENCES WHICH WILL BETTER EQUIP CHILDREN TO ENTER KINDERGARTEN AND TRAIN MOTHERS TO HELP THEIR CHILDREN TO LEARN. IN THE YOUTH COUNCILS, COORDINATORS MEET WITH GROUPS OF OLDER CHILDREN TO PLAN SUCH ACTIVITIES AS FIELD TRIPS, SOCIAL AND RECREATIONAL EVENTS, AND DISCUSSION GROUPS. FIELD TRIPS SUPPLEMENT THE SCHOOL CURRICULUM, STIMULATING THE INTEREST AND CURIOSITY OF THE CHILDREN. THE KEN GAR COMMUNITY HAS THREE MAJOR PROGRAMS--(1) THE HOME STUDY PROGRAM, (2) THE NURSERY SCHOOL, AND (3) THE PARTICIPATION OF THE COMMUNITY PROJECT COORDINATOR IN THE KELSINGTON ELEMENTARY SCHOOL PROGRAM. THE TAYLOR MONOCACY COMMUNITY HAS A SUPPLEMENTARY LANGUAGE ARTS PROGRAM, AND AN AFTER-SCHOOL PROGRAM.
