PROJECT FOR AN AUTOMATED PRIMARY-GRADE READING AND ARITHMETIC CURRICULUM FOR CULTURALLY-DEPRIVED CHILDREN. PROGRESS REPORT NUMBER 5, JULY 1 TO DECEMBER 31, 1966.
ATKINSON, RICHARD C.; SUPPES, PATRICK
THIS REPORT ON THE PROGRESS OF THE IBM 1800/1500 CAI SYSTEM, AN AUTOMATED READING AND ARITHMETIC CURRICULUM FOR CULTURALLY DEPRIVED CHILDREN IN THE PRIMARY GRADES, DISCUSSES THE PROBLEMS INVOLVED IN GETTING THE SYSTEM INTO OPERATION IN THE BRENTWOOD SCHOOL IN STANFORD, CALIF. THE OPERATIONAL FEATURES OF THIS IBM SYSTEM AND THE METHODS BY WHICH THE CHILDREN WERE INTRODUCED TO THE LABORATORY AND ITS MATERIALS ARE ALSO DESCRIBED. THE READING AND ARITHMETIC CURRICULUMS ARE BEING USED IN BOTH THE CLASSROOM AND THE LABORATORY, AND THE RESPONSE OF THE CHILDREN, DESPITE THE BREAKDOWNS OF THE EQUIPMENT, HAS BEEN "ENTHUSIASTIC." SUCCESS FEATURES HAVE BEEN BUILT INTO THE PROGRAMED MATERIALS, MANY OF WHICH DO NOT REQUIRE THE VERBALIZATION SKILLS IN WHICH DISADVANTAGED YOUNGSTERS ARE DEFICIENT. VARIOUS NEWS MEDIA HAVE REPORTED THIS COMPUTERIZED PROGRAM. (NH)
