An Instructional Plan to Enhance Parent-Pupil-School Interactions: John B. Carey Elementary School, 1972-73. Research and Development Report, Vol. 7, No. 48, April 1974.
Branch, Helen M.; Evans, Dale
To move toward meeting the needs of the pupils at Carey the following goals have been developed: (1) to challenge each child's ability by diagnosing his strengths and weaknesses and then individualizing instructional activities for him as much as possible; (2) to concentrate on positive methods of control and reinforcement in all activities; (3) to provide sequential learning activities which develop and improve the child's reading skills, subsequently reinforcing them in other academic areas; (4) to create an atmosphere of continuous open communication between teachers and parents so parents will demonstrate a willingness to participate in their child's academic activities; (5) to provide opportunities for each child to be more acutely aware of his immediate environment; (6) to provide opportunities for positive social and academic interaction experiences among the children; and (7) to make the Parent Teachers Association aware of the children's health needs. The Title I Elementary Secondary Education Act Program provides one counselor-lead teacher, four educational aides, and some funds for materials and supplies. Individual assistance is available to Carey teachers through a Comprehensive Instructional Program resource teacher and through inservice activities for selected teachers. (Author/JM)
