Brief descriptions are provided of four Ohio Follow Through programs, each of which is pilot-testing a different teaching model. The programs are: Akron, The PEP-IPI Model; Cleveland, The Responsive Environment Model; Dayton, The Engelmann-Becker Model; and Martins Ferry, The Mathemagenic Activities Model. The PEP (Primary Education Project)-IPI (Individually Prescribed Instruction) instructional model in use in Akron has two main objectives: (1) to insure that the child develops the basic physical, perceptual, conceptual and relational abilities that underlie learning in all fields; and (2) to insure that he makes steady progress, at his own rate, toward mastery of academic skills. The Responsive Environment Model in Cleveland is based on convictions that children learn best when they are interested in what they are doing, that they learn at different rates, and that they learn in different ways. An essential element of the model is the provision of a classroom environment that leads the children into discovering important facts about their social and physical world. Teaching materials foster skills in language, reading, arithmetic, and science. The Engelmann-Becker Model utilized in Dayton is based on programmed teaching materials based on the technology of task analysis, and concentrated on the acquisition of skills in language, reading, and mathematics. The Mathemagenic Activities Model at Martins Ferry focuses on concept development through teaching that incorporates pupil activities that tangibly exemplify the concepts. Supportive services and Parent Advisory Committee functions are described. (DB)
