HANDBOOK FOR PROJECT HEAD START.
GRAHAM, JORY
THIS BOOKLET WAS DESIGNED TO MEET SOME IMMEDIATE NEEDS FOR THE FIRST SUMMER SESSION OF PROJECT HEAD START. IT CONTAINS SOME OF THE MOST WORKABLE AND PROMISING TEACHING METHODS IN THE ENTIRE FIELD OF COMPENSATORY EDUCATIONS, METHODS THAT HAVE BEEN USED IN PRIVATELY SPONSORED CENTERS AND HAVE PROVED VALUABLE IN COPING WITH PROBLEMS ENCOUNTERED IN THOSE CENTERS. (1) EACH CHILD SHOULD BE SPOKEN WITH EVERY DAY, IN ORDER TO OVERCOME HIS SILENCE. (2) HELPING CHILDREN BECOME SKILLFUL AT OBSERVATION BY CLASSIFYING OBJECTS AND READING PICTURES WILL ALSO INCREASE THEIR CURIOSITY. (3) DEMONSTRATIONS SUCH AS ZIPPING A ZIPPER ARE EFFECTIVE IN TEACHING PRACTICAL SKILLS. (4) THERE ARE MANY WAYS TO BUILD SELF IMAGE OR SELF RESPECT IN CHILDREN. ONE WAY IS TO LEARN RESPECT FOR OTHERS BY GIVING EACH CHILD SOME PERSONAL POSSESSION. (5) CHILDREN ALSO NEED TO USE PHYSICAL AND EMOTIONAL ACTIVITIES SUCH AS RUNNING AND PAINTING EXPRESS THEIR FEELINGS. (6) FOR CHILDREN TO DEVELOP CURIOSITY THROUGH SCIENCE THEY CAN HAVE PETS AND PLANTS IN THE CLASSROOM. MANY CONCRETE SUGGESTIONS FOR WORKING WITH BOTH INDIVIDUAL CHILDREN AND GROUPS OF CHILDREN ARE GIVEN. THIS DOCUMENT IS AVAILABLE FROM THE ANTI-DEFAMATION LEAGUE OF B'NAI B'RITH, 315 LEXINGTON AVE., N.Y., N.Y., 10016, FOR $0.50. (COD)
