"PROJECT LEARNING POWER," A TITLE I ESEA PROJECT OF THORNTON FRACTIONAL AREA EDUCATIONAL COOPERATIVE, SUMMER, 1967.
FACKLAM, JAMES; TIBBETT, JOHN H.
AN ATTEMPT TO OFFER MORE THAN A REMEDIAL PROGRAM TO UNDERACHIEVERS, THIS PROJECT WAS A 6-WEEK SUMMER SESSION DEVOTED TO TEACHING BASIC READING AND MATHEMATICS CONCEPTS IN AN INDIVIDUALIZED LEARNING SETTING. EMPHASIS WAS ON CULTURE AND THE COMMUNITY, BUT PHYSICAL EDUCATION AND RECREATION WERE ALSO INCLUDED. UNDUE CONFLICT, COMPETITION, AND PRESSURE WERE AVOIDED IN DEALING WITH THE CHILDREN. THE INSTRUCTIONAL PROGRAM WAS DESIGNED BY TEAM TEACHERS, A CENTRAL PLANNING COMMITTEE, AND SUBJECT MATTER SPECIALISTS. PRIOR TO THE SUMMER SESSION THERE WAS A WORKSHOP SERIES IN MATHEMATICS AND READING, WHERE INNOVATIVE IDEAS WERE ENCOURAGED. ONE INNOVATION WAS THE EMPLOYMENT OF TEACHERS WHO COLLECTED MATERIALS AND CONDUCTED AN EVALUATION. DESCRIPTIONS OF THE PROGRAM'S PHILOSOPHY, CONTENT, EVALUATION, AND PROCEDURES ARE INCLUDED. (AF)
