Bertoldi, Arthur; Duphiney, Lorna
A differentiated staffing model involving the use of adult educational assistants to work with the kindergarten teacher and children within the classroom was utilized as the experimental concept for an Early Childhood project funded under Title I of the 1965 Elementary Secondary Education Act in the 1970-71 school year. The primary purpose of the program was to assign educational assistants to help the kindergarten classroom teacher and to provide services for the children. The kindergarten educational assistants were assigned to work six hours a day, three hours in the morning and three in the afternoon. It was thought that the added adult would make it possible to provide individualized instruction within the classroom. The adult would assist the teacher in developing improved attitudes, skills, and habits in accordance with specific objectives established by the teacher and group. As part of the project, services were also provided for the nutritional (lunch), emotional, and social needs of the program. The objectives for this project were established to accomplish: (1) Readiness for Reading in First Grade; (2) Listening and Speaking Skills for First Grade; (3) Beginning Reading for Individuals; (4) Personal Experiences; (5) Increased Self-Worth; (6) Social, Emotional, and Physical Growth; and, (7) Scholastic Achievement.
