Project HEED, Title III, Section 306. Final Evaluation Report.
Hughes, Orval D.
Project HEED (Heed Ethnic Educational Depolarization) involves over 1,000 Indian children in grades 1-8 in Arizona. The project target sites are 48 classrooms at Sells, Topowa, San Carlos, Many Farms, Hotevilla, Peach Springs, and Sacaton. Objectives are to increase: (1) reading achievement, (2) affective behavior of teachers, (3) motivation by means of an open curriculum, (4) effective Special Education programs, and (5) involvement of parents in the school/community relations. Project HEED is evaluated for 1971-72 by a variety of tests on a pretest and posttest basis. Among these are the Distar Mastery Test; Field Enterprise, Special Needs Reading Series; Wide Range Achievement Testing; Self-Appraisal Inventory; and the SRA Reading Comprehension and Vocabulary Tests. Some of the findings are: (1) a noted progress in reading achievement in nearly all classrooms; (2) an increase in self-image of the students; (3) an 80% improvement in affective behavioral patterns of the teachers; and (4) a 70% increase in parent involvement. Majority of the data is in tabular form by grade and school. (NQ)
