1972 Sodus [New York] Migrant Summer Program.
Gadjo, Henry W.; Hayden, Laurie
The Sodus 1972 Summer Migrant Program entailed many facets to project learning experiences for the migrant of all ages. Its major goal was widening the migrants' experiences so that they might have more control over their own destiny. The 4 major phases to the Sodus Program's operation included the day care center for infants; the Summer Migrant School, which handles children of ages 4 1/2 to 14; the Youth Center, which provided recreation for children through young adults; and a consumer education class, which offered a 12-lesson sewing course for adults. The Summer Migrant School offered programs in music, art, and physical education; health; reading; special education, through the Board of Cooperative Education; and an opportunity for migrant children to attend a day camp offering nature hikes, arts, crafts, games, and group singing--provided and funded by the Seven Lakes Girl Scout Council, Inc. The administration and results of the Wide Range Achievement Test and of a Migrant Children Needs Assessment Survey were additional topics of concern. The findings of the needs survey, which was distributed to summer session teachers and to teachers at the schools where the children have their home base, indicated that teachers of both areas of the country who dealt with the same children felt that although the cognitive domain dealing with the intellectual processes was important, it was more important to emphasize the affective domain of the learners during a summer school program.
