Evaluation of Migrant Summer School Programs Supported by the New York State Department of Education During 1968. Final Report.
Garofalo, V. James
Central New York's 1968 migrant summer school programs were sampled and evaluated on the basis of meeting Crewson's objectives as stated in 1967: (1) improvement of self-concept; (2) development of language ability and vocabulary; (3) development of social and academic skills; (4) expansion of cultural experiences; and (5) establishment of sound health and nutritional habits. Individual children, schools, teachers, and parents provided data related to each objective. Although assessment was limited in the areas of classroom interaction scales, parent interviews, and achievement testing, it was felt that the summer school programs were successful, particularly in reading and arithmetic. Suggestions were made for correcting these limitations and for studying ways of aiding teachers. (SW)
