Motivation Center.
Youngstown Public Schools.
This report of the Youngstown (Ohio) Public Schools concerns the operation of their Motivation Center program, funded by Title I of ESEA. The purpose of the Motivation Center is to establish a working and learning environment in which the emphasis will be on building and improving the pupil's self-image. It is specifically designed to provide incentives for the child whose functional level is considerably below his potential. The approach to learning is structured, flexible, and innovative, without the usual pressures and conformities expected in the average classroom. The plan provides for individualized instruction and a prescriptive program for each child. The bulk of this report is a description of radical curriculum and teaching strategies in reading, social studies, mathematics, and science. Since this is basically a program design, there is no discussion of program implementation. (Several pages of this reproduced document will be totally illegible.] (Author/JW)
