GUIDEBOOK FOR TEACHERS.
FRYE, KENNETH
THIS DOCUMENT IS A GUIDEBOOK FOR PRESCHOOL TEACHERS. PREPARED BY STAFF MEMBERS OF THE HARDY COUNTY, WEST VIRGINIA SCHOOL SYSTEM, IT DELINEATES THE OBJECTIVES AND BASIC FORMAT OF A PRESCHOOL ENRICHMENT PROGRAM. THE PROGRAM IS DESIGNED AS A PREPARATORY ENRICHMENT EXPERIENCE FOR CULTURALLY AND ECONOMICALLY DEPRIVED CHILDREN WHO, WITHOUT SUCH A PROGRAM, WILL BEGIN FORMAL SCHOOLING WITH A MENTAL AND SOCIAL PERFORMANCE LEVEL SIGNIFICANTLY BELOW THAT OF CHILDREN FROM MIDDLE AND HIGH INCOME FAMILIES. A DETAILED BLUEPRINT OF THE PROGRAM PLAN IS PRESENTED. INCLUDED IN THE PRESENTATION IS INFORMATION REGARDING (1) THE PROJECT PERSONNEL, (2) A SUGGESTED DAILY SCHEDULE FOR THE THREE HOUR PRESCHOOL SESSION, (3) A SUGGESTED LIST OF MATERIALS AND SUPPLIES, AND (4) A SUGGESTED CURRICULUM. THE SUGGESTED CURRICULUM ITEM IS TAKEN UP IN SOME DETAIL AND INCLUDES A DISCUSSION OF SUCH ASPECTS AS (1) THOSE CLASSROOM EXPERIENCES NECESSARY IN ESTABLISHING THE BASIC MENTAL, PHYSICAL, AND SOCIAL PATTERNS THAT WILL BE REQUIRED IN REGULAR SCHOOL, (2) THE TEACHING OF SOUND HEALTH PRACTICES, (3) FIELD TRIPS, (4) A NUTRITIONAL LUNCH PROGRAM, AND (5) MONTHLY PARENT DISCUSSION GROUPS. THE GREATEST EMPHASIS OF THE SUGGESTED CURRICULUM IS WITH ITEMS ONE AND TWO, THE DEVELOPMENT OF A COMPREHENSIVE, ALTHOUGH NOT EXHAUSTIVE, OUTLINE OF POSSIBLE CLASSROOM EXPERIENCES OR ACTIVITIES. TWENTY-FIVE SUCH CLASSROOM EXPERIENCES ARE TREATED IN THE DOCUMENT, WITH MENTION OF SEVERAL SUBPOINTS UNDER EACH. (WD)
