Head Start in Action.
Riley, Clara M. D.; Epps, Frances M. J.
Records and observations from a summer Head Start program, conducted in Los Angeles by Delta Sigma Theta, are delineated in this book. It relates firsthand experiences of the participating personnel as they developed and implemented a Head Start program for some 300 children. The book is divided into three sections. Section I, "Procedures," details the legal, physical, and personnel requisites for establishing the program. Section II, "Program," discusses the opening and operation of the Head Start sessions. Section III, "Promise," sets out the research results of the program and suggests a design for a followup study. The book presents an overview of what Head Start is and a detailed account of the setting up of the program, how the program worked in actual practice, and what promise Head Start programs offer for the future as indicated by the research data. A bibliography is included. (WD)
