Specific objectives are listed for changes in mothers, teachers, and pupils. The role of the aide in effecting home-school liaison is outlined, and a typical day in the classroom is described. A section on"Procedures for Implementation" describes (1) the summer workshop to train both teachers and aides in their role relationships and in a set of observation techniques for studying individuals, groups, teaching behavior, or classroom climate; (2) the development of materials and teaching procedures; (3) the consultant and monitoring system developed by the university to assist participating schools.
