ENGLISH AS A SECOND LANGUAGE, COURSE OF STUDY, OPERATION HEAD START PROJECT 0162.
VARNER, CARL L.
A PROJECT HEAD START COURSE OF STUDY WAS DEVELOPED TO BE USED AS A GUIDELINE FOR TEACHERS WORKING WITH NON-ENGLISH SPEAKING MEXICAN-AMERICANS IN A 1965 SUMMER PROGRAM OPERATED BY THE CALEXICO, CALIFORNIA, SCHOOL DISTRICT. THE OBJECTIVE OF THE PROJECT WAS TO RAISE THE CULTURAL AND EDUCATIONAL LEVEL OF DISADVANTAGED PUPILS. EMPHASIS WAS PLACED ON ENGLISH LANGUAGE BASIC VOCABULARY DEVELOPMENT THROUGH NATURAL INTEREST IN COMMON EXPERIENCES. SESSIONS WERE SCHEDULED FOR 3 1/2 HOURS DAILY FOR 6 WEEKS. PRE-SCHOOL AND KINDERGARTEN SUGGESTIONS INCLUDE FIELD TRIPS, FAMILY PARTICIPATION ACTIVITIES, CLASSROOM PREPARATION IDEAS, AND OPENING OF SCHOOL PREPARATIONS. NO EVALUATION WAS REPORTED. (SF)
