A Preschool Training Program; SEL Pathways to Better Schools. SEL Pathway Series, Vol. 6.
Southeastern Education Lab., Atlanta, GA.
"A Preschool Training Program" is Volume 6 in a series of 7 guides prepared by the Southeastern Education Laboratory to assist rural school districts, especially in the Southern States, in writing acceptable Title III proposals under the Elementary and Secondary Education Act. The document presents a planning proposal which was funded, along with a case commentary evaluating the strengths and weaknesses of the illustrative proposal. The program described in the document seeks (1) to implement a 3-year sequential curriculum based upon concepts and structure basic to the cognitive development of young children, (2) to change the traditional roles and functions of the student and teacher, (3) to accommodate individual differences in learning, (4) to involve parents in cognitive development of their children, and (5) to allow teachers to work with small groups by using paraprofessionals. Additional specific suggestions and reference resources are cited, and 2 bibliographies are presented, the first for the illustrative case and the other, a supplementary one, for the case commentaries.
