A Revision of the Basic Program Plan of Education at Age Three.
Nimnicht, Glen P.
A model responsive educational system being evolved by the Far West Laboratory is designed to serve children from ages 3 to 9. The major objectives of the educational system are to help children develop self-concept as it relates to learning in the school and the home, and to develop intellectual ability. An autotelic environment is stressed. The system integrates four component parts: (A) Head Start, (B) Follow Through, (C) Parent-Child Library, and (D) Day Care Program. Component E, the systems component, can stand alone or become a part of the total system. The timetable charts span 1966-76 and indicate the number of years involved in program development, training tasks, parent involvement activities, implementation in classrooms, evaluation for each component and for the total system. Feedback from the Head Start component has already provided enough information to permit this first revision of the basic plan and to reshape the tasks and objectives of subsequent phases. (WY)
