Bidna, David B.
This report describes the Maclay On-Site Training Project (MOST), a project (at Maclay Junior High School in Los Angeles City School Districts) directed to focus the attention of teacher trainees upon language problems of the educationally disadvantaged child and to bring about improvement in pupils' language skills. The rationale for the project and its objectives and design are described. The five projects comprising MOST--(1) Preparing Preservice Teachers to Teach Disadvantaged Youth, (2) Compensatory Education in Social Studies, (3) Compensatory Education in Junior High School Mathematics, (4) Compensatory Education in Junior High School Science, and (5) Inservice Education in the Sociology and Psychology of Compensatory Education--are described individually in terms of objectives and design. Three of these components were continuing programs funded by the McAteer Compensatory Education Act as of spring and summer 1966, while the two other projects were initiated under MOST, which was established under the auspices of San Fernando State College, the Los Angeles City School Districts, and the Office of Compensatory Education of the State of California. Inasmuch as this is a preliminary report, findings and conclusions are not presented. (Appended is a description of the Maclay On-Site Training Project Experimental Linguistic Program.) (SG)
