AFTER-SCHOOL STUDY CENTERS REVIEW.
SCHWAB, ROSE L.
AN ACTION PROGRAM ATTEMPTS TO PROMOTE BETTER ACADEMIC ACHIEVEMENT FOR MINORITY GROUP CHILDREN. ABOUT 70,000 CHILDREN ARE INVOLVED IN THE ASSC PROGRAM, THREE AFTERNOONS A WEEK. IN ADDITION TO THE REMEDIAL SERVICES AND TEACHER ASSISTANCE, SCHOOL LIBRARIES AND HOMEWORK ROOMS ARE MADE AVAILABLE TO ASSC PUPILS AND PROVIDE STIMULATION FOR THOSE NEEDING TO IMPROVE THEIR WORK-STUDY SKILLS. SINCE SKILL IN READING IS THE CORE OF ELEMENTARY EDUCATION, READING ACTIVITIES COMPRISE A LARGE PART OF THE AFTER-SCHOOL STUDY CENTER PROGRAM. THERE IS RARELY A SINGLE REMEDY OR CURE-ALL FOR READING DEFICIENCY, BUT SMALL GROUPS MAKE IT POSSIBLE FOR THE TEACHER TO FIT METHODS AND MATERIALS TO THE CHILD. PRESENTED IN THE REVIEW ARE SUMMARIES AND SUGGESTIONS FROM VARIOUS ASSC SCHOOLS AND TEACHERS ON THE USE OF MATERIALS, AUDIOVISUAL EQUIPMENT, TAPED LESSONS, CREATIVE ENDEAVORS, AND SPECIAL READING PROJECTS. THE PROGRAM OF MATHEMATICS IN THE ELEMENTARY SCHOOL IS CONCERNED WITH HELPING CHILDREN AT ALL LEVELS OF ABILITY TO DEVELOP MATHEMATICAL POWER, TO LEARN MATHEMATICS AS A SCIENCE, AND TO USE MATHEMATICAL SKILLS WITH INTEREST AND ASSURANCE. SUGGESTED PROBLEM-SOLVING AIDS AND CASE STUDIES COMPILED BY VARIOUS ASSC TEACHERS ARE INCLUDED. SUMMARIES OF INDIVIDUAL SCHOOL EFFORTS IN THE AREAS OF LIBRARY SERVICES AND HOMEWORK, SCHOOL PUBLICATIONS, AND ADMINISTRATIVE ROUTINES ARE ALSO PRESENTED.
