Butte Vocational-Technical Center, Montana.
The booklet describes Project Prepare, a program designed to teach educationally disadvantaged parents adult basic education skills in their own homes and then to show these parents how and what to teach their preschool children. Information is provided on the design and implementation of the projects. Seven specific problems in adult basic education and preschool education which were encountered in the project are identified and discussed; corresponding recommendations for action are made. Approximately half of the booklet comprises an evaluation report and appendixes. The evaluation report analyzes the three major staff objectives: the parents will be better able to become effectively involved in their children's education; the preschool children will have experiences, use materials, and develop skills aimed at furthering their development; and the project staff will develop and adapt materials and methods that are effective in achieving the project objectives. Appendixes treat the following subjects: objectives and evaluation questions, discussion guide for evaluation instrumentation, questions from evaluation forms, parent and child activities, and suggestions and procedures transmitted to parents.
