Samoan Demonstration Program: Volume 1. Final Report for FY 73-74.
Douthit, Dorothy B.; Lung, Julina
The Samoan Demonstration Program had the objectives of: (1) reaching disadvantaged Samoan immigrants to Hawaii to help them compete for vocational and apprenticeship programs; (2) integrating the program's services with other resources to reach the total family unit; (3) instituting peer instruction as a curriculum innovation; (4) teaching basic education to the 75 unemployed and underemployed Samoan adults in the program; and (5) measuring differences between traditional classroom techniques used in the first year with the curriculum to be developed in the second year. The first part of the document introduces the problem, program organization, and the approach. Section 2 presents information on selection of instructional areas and teachers, class location, and teacher training; student selection, enrollment, and attendance; instructional materials and methodology; evaluation techniques, awards, counseling, supportive and consultive services. Bilingual and bicultural considerations, basic education based on high interest subject matter, peer instruction, and reaching the total family unit are considered in section 3, along with evaluation techniques, attendance indications, class size, and length of courses. Sections 4 and 5 briefly discuss implications and plans for information dissemination. Appendixes present a report on teacher training workshops, forms, class visitation report, review and samples of instructional materials, and a summary of content for workshops. (NH)
