Institute for Training Follow Through Personnel in Parent Participation and Education.
Florida Univ., Gainesville. Coll. of Education.
A two-week summer training workshop will be conducted as the first step in a year-long relationship between six local communities (Providence, R.I.; Richmond, Va.; Jonesboro, Ark.; Lac du Flambeau, Wis.; Yakima, Wash.; Jacksonville, Fla.) and the University of Florida, Gainesville. (Each will use the Florida Parent Education Model--see SP 002 385--in a Follow Through compensatory education program. The approach requires the utilization of nonprofessionals as classroom teacher aides and as teachers of mothers in the home.) The 45 workshop participants will be teams from each of the communities: a Follow Through Coordinator, the kindergarten and first grade teachers, and the teacher aide/parent educators. Both teachers and aides will receive (1) lecture-discussions and readings in childhood development and learning, especially of disadvantaged pupils and (2) laboratory skill training in techniques of classroom and pupil observation. Teachers will receive training in techniques for supervising another adult in the classroom and in classroom management of learning tasks. Aides will have a practicum in techniques for teaching mothers in the home. (Included are a general description of the Follow Through program; objectives for the Florida Model; and notes on institute facilities, evaluation, instructional staff, and participant eligibility.)
