Evaluation of E. S. E. A. Title I Project of the Silver Lake Regional School District, Summer 1973.
Kaufman, Maurice
The summer 1973 Title I, Elementary Secondary Education Act of 1965 project was conducted in three communities of the Silver Lake Regional School District; Halifax, Kingston, and Plympton. The program consisted of instruction in reading, mathematics, physical education, art, speech therapy, and counseling and psychological testing. The target population was children who had completed grades 1, 2, 3, 4, or 5. Children were selected for the program on the basis of educational need in reading or mathematics. The children were selected by means of achievement testing and teacher referral. Each child participated in reading or mathematics instruction or both, depending on need. All children participated in art and physical education activities. The evaluator visited the three schools in which the program was conducted, observing instruction and activities and interviewing the staff. Test results and other information were submitted to him for analysis. Progress in reading comprehension occurred at each grade level. Phonics knowledge was initially good or showed significant improvement. Third, fourth, and fifth graders made significant gains in mathematics. No gains were made on the motor screening test. Speech and counseling work evidently serves as a helpful bridge between the preceding and following school years. (Author/JM)
