Resnick, Lauren B.; And Others
The 1970-71 Follow Through Planned Variation study will evaluate new approaches to early education for children from low income families. Brief descriptions are given of the 20 program approaches being used in 160 public schools selected for the study. Programs reflect a wide spectrum of theoretical positions, which range from less structured child-centered approach which emphasizes not curriculum content so much as the development of the child's confidence and other behavioral characteristics. Two of the approaches emphasize parent training and participation. Included is a list of addresses of the 20 program sponsors, from whom more detailed presentations are available. (Author/NH)
