The Saturday School: An Installation Manual.
Parrish, Valinda E.; Wilson, Winston T.
This manual describes the mechanics and major features of a Saturday school project for 40 Negro preschool children implemented by the South Central Region Educational Laboratory in the 1968-69 school year in Caddo Parish, Louisiana. The manual has two goals: (1) to inform the reader about how the project was successfully implemented, and (2) to offer recommendations on ways to improve specific aspects on future projects. The Saturday School concept was developed with the culturally disadvantaged child and the educationally retarded parent in mind, and is useful when financial and professional resources are not available to support weekday kindergartens. The report is divided into eight sections. Sections cover description of population, physical setting and logistics, educational objectives, means of achieving objectives, staffing, and a budget-cost itemization. Also included is a three-page evaluation of the project. The appendices (3/4 of the manual) contain detailed information, including lesson plans outlining the objectives and activities for 29 separate school days, and 29 corresponding parent schedules. Also included are equipment/supply lists, related literature, a copy of an annotated tape of parents comment, and directions for making equipment and materials. (JF)
