Guidelines in Teaching the Disadvantaged.
Idleman, Hillis K.
The document was developed to help districts in the planning and carrying out of successful programs for disadvantaged pupils. It provides a rationale for curriculum development as it relates to the disadvantaged, directed to administrators, curriculum workers, and teachers. The three compensatory education priorities are reading, mathematics, and bilingual education. Some promising developments in the field are smaller class sizes, use of teacher assistants, new organizational patterns, team teaching, and new equipment and materials. Teacher attitudes, the value and methods of planning, applying psychological insights, utilization of community resources, and participation are discussed. (MS)
