Saturday School's Impact on Students, Parents and Teachers: A Summary of Three Years of Research Findings.
This report presents the major outcomes of the Saturday School (a school and home learning program for 4-year-olds in a large suburban school district) during its first three years of operation. Data summarized indicates the program's impact on the children, especially those with learning problems, and the effect of the program on the attitudes, behaviors, and competencies of the parents and staff members. Program components include 3-hour morning or afternoon sessions on Saturdays; diagnosis of each child's cognitive, social, and physical development; use of parents as teacher aides; weekly home visits by teachers or specialists; and home activity guides for parents. Descriptions of the tests and forms used and summaries of the program results make up the bulk of the report. In all areas measured, students, parents, and teachers showed significant improvements. Test scores for both normal and handicapped students are compared. (ED)
