Teachers of Migrant Elementary School Children. EPDA Institute (October 8, 1969 to March 14, 1970). Final Report.
Miami Univ., Coral Gables, FL.
This five-month EPDA part-time institute trained 41 elementary school teachers working with migrant children--Negroes, Mexican Americans, and Puerto Ricans--in the South district of Dade County, Florida. Wednesday classes taught by the institute director met in various elementary schools in the afternoon. The emphasis was on methods which help migrant children succeed in school. On Saturdays a speaker made a presentation, followed by discussion groups led by graduate students, and later in the afternoon, a question and answer period with the morning speaker was held. Each participant made two home visits and carried on a project with migrant children. At the conclusion of the institute each participant was asked to evaluate the program by rating 20 different aspects on a 5-point scale. The median rating for each of the 20 items was either four or five. (A 175-page appendix contains samples of forms used, outlines of lectures and discussions, and project descriptions written by the participants.) (Author/RT)
