MDTA VOCATIONAL EXPERIMENTAL-DEMONSTRATION PROJECT FOR TRAINING AND PLACEMENT OF YOUTHFUL OFFENDERS. 13TH PROGRESS REPORT.
MCKEE, JOHN M.; AND OTHERS
INDIVIDUALLY DESIGNED BASIC EDUCATION PROGRAMS EMPHASIZING PROGRAMED INSTRUCTION TO PROVIDE MOTIVATION THROUGH CONTINUOUS FEEDBACK COMPLEMENT THE VOCATIONAL TRAINING GIVEN EACH INMATE PARTICIPATING IN THE DEMONSTRATION PROJECT AT THE DRAPER CORRECTIONAL CENTER. A REMEDIAL READING PROGRAM FOR ALL TRAINEES SCORING BELOW 7TH GRADE INCLUDES PHONICS TRAINING AND A READING IMPROVEMENT PROGRAM OF 40 LESSONS IN WHICH LECTURE-ARTICLES, TACHISTOSCOPIC EXERCISES (THE PERCEPTOSCOPE), AND CONTROLLED PRACTICE ARTICLES WITH COMPREHENSION TESTS ARE USED. A PROGRAM OF ACADEMIC GAMES WHICH CAN PROVIDE ADDITIONAL MOTIVATION AND OPPORTUNITIES FOR INTELLECTUAL GROUP INTERACTION IS PLANNED. IN A CONTROLLED EXPERIMENT, FOUR GAMES--EQUATIONS, ON SETS, DEMOCRACY, AND PROPAGANDA--WILL BE USED IN VARYING COMBINATIONS WITH OTHER TEACHING METHODS BY SIX GROUPS OF STUDENTS WHOSE ACHIEVEMENTS WILL BE TESTED AND COMPARED. EACH GAME TEACHES ONE SUBJECT AND IS SO STRUCTURED THAT IN ORDER TO WIN A PLAYER MUST BE ABLE TO COMMUNICATE HIS KNOWLEDGE TO OTHER PLAYERS. ASPECTS OF THE PROJECT REVIEWED IN THIS REPORT INCLUDE CONTINGENCY MANAGEMENT STUDIES, MATERIALS DEVELOPMENT, FOLLOW-UP CASE HISTORIES, COMMUNITY SPONSOR PROGRAM, INSERVICE TRAINING, READING PROGRAM EVALUATION, MATERIALS AND READING RESOURCES, TRAINING CONFERENCES, AND THE STUDY OF RECIDIVISTS.
