Project Aloha: Mainland Demonstration of the Hawaii English Program.
Berryessa Union Elementary School District, San Jose, CA.
This newsletter describes the Hawaii Language Skills Program, a total instructional system that provides teacher materials, pupil materials, instructional approaches, and ways of assessing children's progress in language skills, literature, and language systems. Key approaches used include self-direction and peer tutoring. The children are trained to work independently in an environment laid out to permit choices from among 680 components and activities, as well as an environment that responds immediately to a child's unique decision. Audio card readers are one example of the auditory equipment available in the program. The conventional reliance on the single book has been replaced by a wider use of multi-modal presentations to accommodate the many different learning styles of children. The structure of the objectives and the management and record-keeping procedures of the system allow teachers to create an environment in which responsible self-activization and self-direction are developed in the learner.
