Evaluation of Decentralized ESEA Title I Programs, District 23, New York City Board of Education, 1970-1971 School Year.
Schweitzer, Paul; And Others
At the beginning of the 1970-71 school year, eight ESEA Title I programs were implemented in Community District 23. The eight projects that were basic to the Title I program in District 23 included a Pre-Kindergarten Program, the basic aims of which were the development of language, perceptual, and cognitive skills in young children. A second project, a Special Primary Program, sought to raise the academic level of participating pupils, particularly those in grades K-3. A Strengthening Early Childhood Education Program was organized to foster reading readiness, listening and speaking skills, and growth in vocabulary and comprehension. To accomplish the goals of these and other projects in the District, a Paraprofessional Resource Program was instituted to train paraprofessionals and to promote the effectiveness of their work in the classroom. To increase the effectiveness of beginning teachers, Title I funds were used in a Teacher Training Project. The project also sought to increase the effectiveness of teacher-paraprofessional teams working in the classrooms. Two other projects included a Special Library Demonstration program and a Bilingual Program. (Author/JM)
