THE DURHAM EDUCATION IMPROVEMENT PROGRAM 1966-1967.
SPAULDING, ROBERT L.
DISADVANTAGED CHILDREN CAN BE HELPED BY WARM, UNDERSTANDING TEACHERS WHO PROVIDE A STRUCTURED ENVIRONMENT OF CONCRETE EXPERIENCES WHICH INVITE EXPLORATION, LANGUAGE, AND THOUGHT. THIS IS THE HYPOTHESIS ADVANCED BY THE EDUCATIONAL IMPROVEMENT PROGRAM (EIP) DURING ITS SECOND YEAR OF OPERATION. EIP HAD DEVELOPED EDUCATIONAL AND EXPERIMENTAL PROJECTS WHICH INCLUDE YOUNGSTERS FROM BIRTH THROUGH JUNIOR HIGH AGE. THE INFANT PROJECT IS A SCIENTIFIC STUDY OF THE DEVELOPMENT OF 32 BABIES. OTHER PROJECTS INCLUDE UNGRADED CLASSROOMS, TEAM TEACHING SITUATIONS, COOPERATIVE TEACHING ARRANGEMENTS, AND THE ESTABLISHMENT OF AN INSTRUCTIONAL MATERIALS CENTER. THE EIP-YOUTH PROJECT WAS DESIGNED TO--(1) PROVIDE AN OPPORTUNITY FOR GROUP IDENTIFICATION AND EXPERIENCES FOR TEENAGERS, (2) HELP TEENAGERS GAIN A NEW AWARENESS OF WHO THEY ARE AND WHAT THEY WANT TO BECOME, AND (3) ENHANCE THEIR SELF-IMAGES BY INCREASING SKILLS IN THE CONSTRUCTIVE USE OF LEISURE TIME. A HEALTH PROGRAM HAS BEEN DEVELOPED TO PROVIDE HEALTH SERVICES FOR THE STUDENT POPULATION AND HEALTH EDUCATION FOR PARENTS. THIS REPORT INCLUDES CHARTS SHOWING CHARACTERISTICS OF EIP CHILDREN AND THEIR FAMILIES. (ES)
