This booklet is one of 34 in a series on childhood education programs in support of a White House Conference on Children, December 1970. The Goldsboro Program included 1,165 first, second, and third grade pupils in ungraded classes at seven schools. The pamphlet describes how the classroom organization and atmosphere, the instructional materials, and the language experience approach to reading are used to meet the two primary program objectives: (1) to help the child acquire a positive self-image, and (2) to motivate the child to grow intellectually.
