Abbreviated Version of the 1971-72 Final Evaluation Report. Preschool for Urban Children Project.
Landes, Sandra R.
A project designed to serve two purposes in serving urban children is described. The purposes are: (1) to provide preschool education based on Sesame Street viewing, and (2) to provide an experimental framework to evaluate three possible approaches of parental involvement which might further enhance the gains of children viewing Sesame Street. The project consists of three study components, each representing a different method of parent involvement. Six viewing centers were established--two centers per component. The two centers in Component I have a program utilizing "parents in the school setting.""Parents with social work aide service" are enrolled in the centers of Component II. Component III is a home base project, in which the centers serve only as central meeting and resource areas. This report documents the activities of the Preschool for Urban Project during its first operational year. The participants in all three study components consisted of parent-child pairs. All data analyses are based upon those children and parents for whom both pretest and posttest data were available and acceptable. (CK)
