The Culturally Disadvantaged: A Field Experience Guide. Materials/One.
This guide resulted from the work of 14 colleges and universities participating in the Red River Valley Inter-Institutional Project, which related to the education of the culturally disadvantaged child. The project included two field experiences, one urban and the other rural; orientation meetings; and discussions. The aims of the Red River Valley project were fivefold: a) the development of a model for interinstitutional development projects for the disadvantaged child, b) an awareness of the problems in teaching the disadvantaged, c) an exploration of this kind of field experience in relation to other teacher education experiences, d) the comparison of rural and urban disadvantaged youth, and e) an exploration of teaching the disadvantaged and teaching in general. (The guide presents the assumptions of the project, an outline of data to be collected during the field experience program, and selected quotations from six books dealing with the disadvantaged.)
