REACH (RAISING EDUCATIONAL ASPIRATIONS OF THE CULTURALLY HANDICAPPED).
SCHWARTZ, ANTHONY N.; AND OTHERS
AN INTENSIVE PRESCHOOL PROGRAM OF HOME TEACHING AND GUIDANCE WAS CONDUCTED WITH 30 RURAL AREA DISADVANTAGED CHILDREN. THE SAMPLES WERE GROUPED INTO (1) AN EXPERIMENTAL GROUP THAT RECEIVED 21 WEEKS OF HOME TEACHING, (2) A CONTROL GROUP THAT RECEIVED ATTENTION THROUGH HOME VISITS, AND (3) A CONTROL GROUP THAT RECEIVED ONLY THE TESTING. THE INSTRUMENTS USED FOR MEASUREMENT WERE THE STANFORD-BINET, VINELAND SOCIAL MATURITY SCALE, ILLINOIS TEST OF PSYCHOLINGUISTIC ABILITIES, COLUMBIA TEST OF MENTAL MATURITY, PEABODY PICTURE VOCABULARY TEST, AND THE PLATTSBURGH ARITHMETIC READINESS INVENTORY. THE ANALYSIS OF VARIANCE WAS USED AND THE 0.01 LEVEL OF CONFIDENCE ADOPTED IN THE ANALYSES OF DATA. THE RESULTS INDICATED THAT THE PUPILS DID PROFIT, TO SOME EXTENT, FROM THE TEACHING PROGRAM, AND ALSO THAT PARENTS ARE WILLING TO COOPERATE IN HOME-TEACHING PROGRAMS. FINALLY, THE USE OF TELEVISION AS AN INSTRUCTIONAL MEDIUM WAS FOUND TO BE FEASIBLE. (RS)
