How to Make a Summer Head Start Program Make a Difference.
This paper discusses the basic components of a quality summer compensatory program which includes (1) definite objectives, (2) planned, directed teaching, (3) division of responsibility, and (4) internal evaluation. The findings of the Westinghouse report on Head Start and the Ypsilanti Preschool Curriculum Demonstration Project are discussed. About half of the paper gives hints on how to teach and evaluate the language skills of disadvantaged children using examples suggested by Marjorie Kelly (who developed a teacher training mini-course) and Courtney Cazden, an expert on preschool language development.
