Migrant Children: Their Education.
Stockburger, Cassandra; And Others
Since it is felt necessary for the teacher to get to know the migrant child as an individual as quickly as possible, some of the articles in this booklet report on ways in which teachers establish rapport with the newly arriving child. Informal means of assessing achievement levels and learning readiness, ways to help the child develop a more positive attitude toward himself and the school, and tips on use of teacher-developed materials that relate to the child's background are included. Assistance to administrator and teacher by outside organizations and agencies is reviewed in 2 of the articles. Programs discussed include the Racine (Wisconsin) Migrant Program, a Piaget-influenced program in Grady County Schools (Cairo, Georgia), and several inservice teacher education programs. (LS)
