Evaluation of State Urban Education Programs, Community School District 15.
New York Univ., NY. Center for Field Research and School Services.
There were three projects, funded under Urban Education auspices, carried out in various schools in District 15, Brooklyn, during the 1972-73 school year. The objectives of the Return to School program were to place students, who exhibited anti-social behavior or who were frequently truant, into special instructional units where their educational and social needs would be met. A specific objective was to prepare these youth for a return to their regular classrooms. This program was based in school and non-school facilities. The Guidance Aides program was based in seven elementary schools, one intermediate school, and three junior high schools--all in District 15, Brooklyn. Paraprofessionals--young adults well known in the school communities which they served--were assigned to work as assistants to the guidance counselors in their work with educationally and economically disadvantaged children and their parents. The third project is composed of two seperate programs funded under State Urban Education. The Diagnostic Reading Program's major objectives were (1) to show significant positive changes in reading achievement and basic reading skills for those children who are retarded in reading ability and (2) to provide teacher training through demonstration lessons for the classroom teacher. The program consisted of three components: small group teaching, demonstration and/or team teaching, and individual tutoring. The major objective of the Multi-Media Program was to improve the reading skills of retarded readers by supplementing their regular classroom reading program with laboratory experiences. (Author/JM)
