Clinton Pilot Cassette Center Project Director's Report 1970-1971.
Flugaur, George; And Others
The Clinton Cassette Project was begun during 1969-70 to find out if children with reading problems could learn their lessons by listening to them on cassette tapes. This project was the first to include setups for individual and group listening in every classroom in an elementary school. Many tapes were produced and duplicated at Clinton School, Minneapolis, Minn. Goals for 1970-71 were 1) to create a library of cassette tapes that elementary teachers would consider meaningful and useful and 2) to get the tapes into daily use. During the year staff members built a library of 884 tapes, mostly in language arts, literature, mathematics, social studies, and science. The tapes were used primarily by the 148 children at the school classified as educationally disadvantaged. They used the tapes 8,155 times during 1970-71. In 1971-72, the task of individual prescription will be stressed. This report includes a description of how the prescription process works, as well as recommendations about expanding the project into all Title I schools in the district. Teachers' replies to a questionnaire showed they were enthusiastic about the project. For related documents, see EM 010 411 and EM 010 403. (JK)
