"Enriched and Extended School Year": East Cleveland City Schools. A Report...An Experimental Project Funded by Title III E. S. E. A. Ohio Department of Education, 1971-1972.
Armon, Edward F., Ed.; And Others
The East Cleveland "Enriched and Extended School Year" program, funded by Title III of the 1965 Elementary Education Act, is an attempt to organize the educational activities of a school around the needs and learning patterns of its pupils. The major premise of the program states that children possess different rates and styles of learning, and respond to instruction more in accordance to its interest value than to its intrinsic cognitive value. The objectives of the program are to: (1) motivate the child to learn; (2) assist the pupil with hisidentification with his school; (3) change his patterns of learning; and (4) achieve one full year of academic achievement for each year of chronological development. Two major changes in the school process have been developed to attain those objectives. Firstly, six one-week segments of enriching school educational activities were interspersed throughout the year. These activities consisted of five days in instruction conducted by and in local cultural institutions. The instructional programs were highly ego-involving, requiring considerable active participation; included experiences ordinarily not capable of duplication on the school level; and were also designed to be highly educational. The second change was a revision of the traditional school calendar. [Parts of this document are not clearly legible due to the print quality of the original.] (Author/JM)
