Supplementary Language Arts Centers in Danbury.
Connecticut State Dept. of Education, Hartford.
This bulletin, the fourth in a series, describes the Demonstration City Project in Danbury, Connecticut, a model school system designed to research and develop federally-funded programs in close cooperation with educational consultants. Central to the project's goal of turning potential into accomplishment and bringing children up to grade level, was the idea that language arts is more than reading alone. Speaking, writing, and listening skills were included in the planned curriculum. A description is furnished of the criteria by which the children, schools, schedule, curriculum, and staff were selected. Teacher impressions and ideas resulting from the project are listed. (JB)
