PROJECT MOVE AHEAD, DEVELOPMENT OF A PROGRAM FOR STUDENTS FROM MIGRANT AGRICULTURAL FAMILIES IN THE PUBLIC SCHOOLS OF THE MESILLA VALLEY, NEW MEXICO.
SOUTHARD, J.K.; AND OTHERS
IN THE SUMMER OF 1967, WORK WAS INITIATED BY 3 PUBLIC SCHOOL SYSTEMS IN SOUTHERN NEW MEXICO TO PROVIDE AN EDUCATIONAL PROGRAM FOR MIGRANT AGRICULTURAL FAMILIES. THE INITIAL EFFORT INVOLVED A SURVEY TO IDENTIFY MIGRANT YOUTH AND THEIR NEEDS. COMMUNITY AGENCIES AND THE 3 SCHOOL SYSTEMS THEN DETERMINED PRIORITIES AND CONSTRUCTED MATERIALS FOR THE PRESENTATION OF A DAILY RADIO PROGRAM WHICH WAS BROADCAST TO ALL SCHOOLS. IN-SERVICE EDUCATION OF TEACHERS AND A TEACHER AIDE WORKSHOP WAS ALSO CONDUCTED. THE BASIC PURPOSE OF THE EDUCATIONAL PROGRAM WAS TO IMPROVE THE SELF CONCEPT OF THE MIGRANT STUDENT AND HIS FAMILY BY MEANS OF BROADCASTS, FOLLOW-UP ACTIVITIES, NEWSLETTERS, AND HOME AND COMMUNITY CONTACTS. A SAMPLE LESSON PLAN AND NEWSPAPER ARTICLES ARE INCLUDED TO DESCRIBE THE PROGRAM. (JS)
