Project CREATES -- Exploratory Learning Center: Report of Final Project Year. End of Project Report.
Hammerstein, Jean T.
Project CREATES, an open school within the framework of a public school system, has been an attempt to develop a unique educational program with emphasis on role development of personnel and curriculum development. It is seen by parents and children as an important alternative to the self-contained classroom concept of education. Its goals have centered on the continuing development of new roles for teachers; defining and disseminating the processes of developing an open school; and promoting students' awarness of the total environment, sense of exploration, and skill development. The ultimate goal has been to demonstrate that working with children in more open ways is an effective way of achieving skills and attitudes valued in our society. In attempting to summarize the outcomes of the Project, this report deals both with the final project year under ESEA Title III, and with the total 3-year project period. References to the total project period are identified as such. The program has continued to change over the 3-year project period, responsive to needs of students and staff. These changes have been documented as they occurred. The program will continue to evolve as in the past, adjusting to continuation without the advantage of Title III funds.
