Egermeier, John C.
The objectives of Project Vision were to undertake a program to encourage reading-improvement and stimulate interest in higher education and vocational information for the students at Chilocco Indian Agricultural School and to provide practice teaching experience to Oklahoma State University Student Teachers. Several activities were undertaken to accomplish this goal including: (1) identifying a supervisor of project activities; (2) identifying student teachers interested in teaching disadvantaged students and encouraging them to make school visits; (3) identifying 15 to 20 eleventh graders with high academic potentials and introducing them to campus life; (4) establishing an 8-week accredited summer program at Chilocco aimed at involving student teachers with the Indian students; (5) encouraging a one-week home visit by student teachers to familiarize him with the Chilocco culture; and (6) providing a reading improvement and a vocational information center. Each activity was evaluated, all proving to be relatively successful and substantially meeting the stated objectives. Chilocco personnel indicated an interest in continuing the program. The appendices include further details on the reading program and reports of visits to Arizona, New Mexico, and the Northwest. (CM)
