Describing the 1970-71 ESEA, P.L. 89-10, Title I, summer programs for educationally disadvantaged youth of Escambia County, Florida, on the preschool, elementary, and middle school level, this document was intended to apprise taxpayers of how a portion of the Federal tax dollar was used on the local educational level. Included were 30 programs, the proposed general evaluation methodologies, the meal program, and the home visitation project, described in resume form. New techniques were tried, such as field trips to aid language development, mock holidays to provide additional teaching materials, and art and music to provide a feeling of achievement. These programs were developed by school faculties with the assistance of the supervisory and Federal Projects staff members. During 1970 the programs were primarily of an academic nature. Attitudinal modification and the exploration of vocations and the world of work were added in 1971. (MJB)
