ESEA - Title III: Pre-School Language Development. K-3 Developmental Language-Reading Learning Centers. Final Project Evaluation Report, 1971-72.
Smith, Merrill L.
Having identified reading and language deficiencies among a community and primary-age pupils (ages 4-9), a program was written which would remit those deficiencies over a three-year period. This objective will be effected by dealing with four population groups: pupils, teachers and aides, management, and parents. The pre-school component serves 50 four-and five-year old students (75% from the target population and 25% from model homes) who typically function poorly in the primary instructional setting resulting from deficiencies in general language development, perceptual-conceptual development, and perceptual-motor development. The program attempts to acquaint the child with early learning performance rather than remediate failure later in the school setting. The K-3 program serves 130 kindergarten, first, second, and third grade students. Two sites utilize a multi-media, small-group tutorial, diagnostic/prescriptive format to alleviate deficiencies in language and reading. The in-service component serves each population as an assist in keeping people informed about the project. The management component is primarily involved in determining the program, both offering direction for and causing implementation of the program, writing role descriptions and strengthening same as need arises. This report is an evaluation concerned with finding immediately-relevant answers for decision making. (CK)
