Follow Through Program.
Goldsboro City Schools, NC.
This program, included in "Effective Reading Programs...," serves more than 1200 students in first through third grade. The program, begun in 1968, follows the Responsive Educational Program model sponsored by the Far West Laboratory for Educational Research and Development. The program includes learning activities that are self-rewarding and an environment structured to be responsive to the individual child's needs, culture, and interests. The classroom contains learning centers and a variety of games and activities, and the child is free to explore within this environment. Since the program stresses individual diagnosis, each child's needs are determined by a team that may include parents, the teacher, the principal, and a psychologist. Individual profiles, developmental tasks, and criterion-referenced tests are used for diagnosis and achievement assessment. The Parent-Child Learning Center, a book and game library, enables parents to help their children at home. The goals of the program are for each child to develop his or her intellectual abilities and a positive self-image. (TO/AIR)
