Implementation of Developmentally Appropriate Activities for School-Age Youth in the Extended Day Enrichment Program.
Fulmer, Elizabeth H.
A project was developed and implemented to increase developmentally appropriate activities for children in 79 Orange County, Florida, public schools participating in the Extended Day Enrichment Program (EDEP). Personnel from the EDEP were enlisted to produce curriculum kits, resource portfolios, cultural immersion workshops, and music, art, dance, and drama videotapes for the training of EDEP staff. As a result of this intervention program, developmentally appropriate activities were implemented at 64 out of 79 EDEP sites, with a substantial increase in the use of child-selected and child-directed activities. In addition, EDEP staff facilitated child-selected activities, increased social interaction, and became involved in active rather than passive supervision. Twenty appendixes provide copies of various forms and documents used and produced by the EDEP to develop and implement the program. Contains 39 references. (MDM)
