An Investigation and Evaluation of Speech Education in Pre-School and Early Elementary Programs for the Disadvantaged.
Doyle, Michael Vincent
This study investigated and evaluated speech and language arts improvement in pre-school and early elementary programs for the culturally disadvantaged. Using the Headstart and Project Follow Through programs, an examination was made of (1) the scope of the various programs as revealed by quality, personnel, finances, cost, academic emphasis, and parent participation, (2) the children enrolled in the programs (white, Negro, Spanish-American, Indian), (3) the availability of books and resources in language arts, and (4) the Bereiter-Engelmann structured approach to language learning. Statistical data were cited to help provide guidelines for a national restructuring of pre-school compensatory programs. Recommendations called for inservice programs in speech education and language arts, parent involvement in language arts programs, resource information centers in all 50 states, and the involvement of speech educators in all phases of education for the disadvantaged.
