PROJECT FOLLOW THROUGH, AN INDIVIDUALIZED INSTRUCTIONAL PROGRAM. A PROPOSAL.
Duluth Special School District 3, Minn.
THIS PROPOSAL OUTLINES PLANS FOR AN INDIVIDUALIZED INSTRUCTIONAL PROGRAM FOR APPROXIMATELY 100 PROJECT HEADSTART GRADUATES. IN EACH OF THREE TARGET AREA SCHOOLS A "KINDERGARTEN PRIMARY LABORATORY ROOM" WILL BE ESTABLISHED WHERE THE TECHNIQUES OF STUDENT PACING, EXPLORATION, AND SELF-SELECTION WILL BE EMPLOYED. SEVEN PROFESSIONAL STAFF, ELEVEN PARAPROFESSIONALS, AND VARIOUS VOLUNTEERS WILL COOPERATE IN A TEAM TEACHING EFFORT. TO INCREASE STAFF COMPETENCIES, THE PROGRAM WILL OFFER INSERVICE AND PRESERVICE TRAINING. SOCIAL AND CULTURAL ACTIVITIES AND HEALTH, PSYCHOLOGICAL, AND SOCIAL SERVICES WILL BE PROVIDED FOR THE CHILDREN AND THEIR FAMILIES. MOTHERS OF THE HEADSTART GRADUATES WILL PARTICIPATE IN WEEKLY GROUP DISCUSSIONS ON PARENT-CHILD RELATIONS. INTELLIGENCE AND ACHIEVEMENT TESTS AND A SOCIAL MATURITY SCALE WILL BE USED TO EVALUATE PUPIL PROGRESS, AND CHANGES IN TEACHERS' ATTITUDES WILL ALSO BE ASSESSED. IT IS HOPED THAT FUNDS WILL BE MADE AVAILABLE FOR RESEARCH ON THE EFFECTS OF THE PARENT DISCUSSION PROGRAM ON PARENTAL ATTITUDES AND ON THE INTELLECTUAL-SOCIAL DEVELOPMENT OF THE CHILDREN. AN EXISTING "FOLLOW-THROUGH" PROGRAM IS BRIEFLY DESCRIBED. (LB)
