PEP in the Frick Elementary School; Interim Evaluation Report of the Primary Education Project, 1968-1969.
Wang, Margaret C.; And Others
The main objective of the Primary Education Project (PEP) is to develop an individualized early learning program to serve children from age three through the primary grades. The 1968-1969 school year represented the first year during which a formal PEP program was implemented. This report describes the results of this first year. The PEP early learning curriculum included the following areas: (1) beginning mathematics curriculum; (2) classification curriculum, which included skills in basic color, size, and shape discrimination; and (3) gross and fine motor skills curriculum. The effectiveness of PEP is indicated by the significant gains in I.Q. scores and achievement levels by both the PEP criterion-referenced tests and standardized tests. This report presents information on students' progress in cognitive learning only. However, PEP is attempting to create a total learning environment which will affect the growth of young children in both cognitive and psychological development. (Author/FL)
