Classes for Children with Learning Difficulties. End of Project Report.
Jordan, Thomas E.; Pittman, Robert H.
This is the final report of a Calcasieu (Louisiana) Title III project which provided 14 special classes for 297 elementary grade children with learning difficulties over a 2-year period. Project objectives included reducing the number of children scoring poorly on reading, arithmetic, and spelling achievement tests, and increasing the holding power of the special classes. Statistics are provided which show all objectives to have been met at or beyond criterion levels. Inservice teacher training objectives of provision of 10 days of inservice training and significant improvement in teachers' knowledge of learning difficulties as measured by a local examination were also accomplished. The report provides information on a study of teacher attitudes toward the project, a copy of the questionnaire used in the teacher attitudes study, a copy of the locally prepared inservice training examination, a report of teacher opinions of the inservice workshop, and a copy of the self-evaluation and project nomination form. Also provided are data on the effectiveness of the project as a demonstration. (DB)
