OPERATION PEBBLE. SUMMARY REPORT.
NORRED, ROBERT B.
A COMPREHENSIVE EVALUATION OF OPERATION PEBBLE'S 3 YEAR SUMMER PROGRAM FOR ECONOMICALLY AND EDUCATIONALLY DEPRIVED CHILDREN OF THE UPPER CUMBERLAND REGION OF TENNESSEE IS PRESENTED. THE INTENT OF THE PROJECT WAS TO INVOLVE THE CHILDREN IN EXPERIENCES THAT MIGHT EXPAND THE HORIZONS OF THEIR STAGNANT, HIGHLY STRUCTURED CULTURAL ENVIRONMENT, WITHOUT DEMEANING THAT SAME ENVIRONMENT. COUNSELING TECHNIQUES UTILIZED IN THE PROGRAM ARE PRESENTED IN VIEW OF THEIR STATED OBJECTIVES AND THE CHARACTERISTICS OF THE PEBBLE STUDENTS. AN EVALUATION IS GIVEN OF THE INSTRUCTIONAL PROGRAM DEVISED BY THE PEBBLE STAFF TO MEET MEASURED AND APPARENT STUDENT DEFICIENCIES, ALONG WITH INSTRUCTIONAL ACTIVITIES USED FOR THE REMEDIATION OF THESE DEFICIENCIES. THE REPORT'S LAST SECTION DEALS WITH IMPLICATIONS AND RECOMMENDATIONS DERIVED FROM THE PEBBLE EXPERIENCE FOR THE PUBLIC SCHOOLS. (DK)
