Project Aloha. Annual Evaluation Report.
Berryessa Union Elementary School District, San Jose, CA.
This program, included in "Effective Reading Programs...," was begun in 1971 and serves 1,826 children of varying socioeconomic levels in K-4. Project ALOHA is a mainland demonstration of the Hawaii English Program, a total instructional system that provides goals, materials, a management system, and inservice training. The program is highly individualized in regard to pacing, modalities, and sequencing. The goal structure and management system, including a record-keeping system, allow the teacher to create a learning environment that gives children enough choices to develop self-direction skills. At the beginning of each class, the teacher and the children participate in a planning circle to determine the daily direction for each child. To accommodate children's different learning styles, a vast array of materials is available. All of the materials have been designed to facilitate peer tutoring as an integral part of the system, and children are given extensive training in peer-tutoring procedures. Checks are provided within the curriculum so that the teacher can guide each child in the learning activities. The teacher also uses an evaluation circle at the end of the day to help the children develop skillls in evaluating their progress. (TO)
