PRESCHOOL LANGUAGE PROJECT.
STERN, CAROLYN
SINCE THE HIGH SCHOOL DROPOUT IS IDENTIFIABLE IN THE PRIMARY GRADES, IT IS NECESSARY TO LAY THE GROUNDWORK FOR VOCATIONAL TRAINING MUCH EARLIER THAN HIGH SCHOOL. THIS IS THE RATIONALE FOR THE FIVE-YEAR PRESCHOOL LANGUAGE PROJECT FUNDED UNDER THE VOCATIONAL EDUCATION ACT. THE OBJECTIVES OF THIS PROJECT ARE TO PREPARE A SET OF LANGUAGE INSTRUCTIONAL MATERIALS FOR USE IN A DAY CARE PROGRAM AND TO TRAIN EDUCATIONAL RESEARCH PEOPLE. IN DEVELOPING THE LANGUAGE MATERIALS THE BASIC PREMISE IS THAT IT IS IMPORTANT FOR DISADVANTAGED CHILDREN TO DEVELOP STANDARD MIDDLE CLASS SPEECH. PROGRAMED MATERIALS ARE BEING PREPARED WHICH CAN BE PRESENTED BY TEACHER AIDES IN A FIFTEEN MINUTE SESSION EACH DAY. SPECIAL EVALUATIVE INSTRUMENTS HAVE BEEN DEVELOPED FOR THE PURPOSE OF ASSESSING THE VALUE OF THIS PROJECT. RESULTS OF THE PROGRAM WILL BE AVAILABLE IN ONE YEAR. THIS SPEECH WAS GIVEN AT A WORKING CONFERENCE ON RESEARCH AND ACTIVITY IN THE LANGUAGE ARTS FOR THE PRE-PRIMARY/PRIMARY CULTURALLY DIVERSE NON-ENGLISH SPEAKING CHILD IN ALBUQUERQUE, NEW MEXICO, JUNE 4-6, 1967.
