Covert [Children Offered Vital Educational Retraining and Training] Project. Year 1.
Klein, Genevieve, Ed.; And Others
Involving seven Tucson school districts, a children's home, and a child guidance clinic, the Covert School (Children Offered Vital Educational Retraining and Therapy) was designed to initiate, compare, and evaluate educational approaches to the problems of emotionally disturbed children. Six distinct approaches were implemented, including a residential school, a day school, special class programs, a group approach combined with a tutorial program, a supportive teacher for children in regular classes, and recreational therapy for children in regular classes. Areas involved were identification of problem children, the teacher as team member, teacher evaluation and reporting, techniques to be demonstrated, pupil and project evaluations, teacher objectives and purposes, the teacher's professional role, classroom management, and means of teacher identification of individual problems to determine classroom procedures. The school's philosophy, location and physical plant, and organization (cooperation, coordination, admission and dismissal procedures, and implementation planning) are described. (RK)
