The Dale Avenue Performance Objective Model. A Performance Objective Curriculum for Prekindergarten through Third Grade: Special Area Supplement.
Savona, Diane; And Others
The Dale Avenue Early Childhood Education Project was developed in the Dale Avenue School in Paterson, New Jersey through funding the Elementary Secondary Education Act Title III. The Project was validated in 1973 by the standards and guidelines of the U.S. Office of Education as innovative, successful, cost effective, and exportable. As a result, the New Jersey E.S.E.A. Title III program is funding the project as a demonstration site to offer interested educators the opportunity to see the program in operation and receive training in its replication. Materials developed by the program are available at cost. It is noted here that the special area teachers at Dale Avenue School are teaching art, music, physical education, and home economics skills to very young children. Special area objectives for these early years were developed by the special area teachers, as specified by their Special Area supervisors and compatible with the Dale Avenue Performance Objectives, which are held to be based on the needs of young urban children. The objectives provide suggestions to special area teachers who work with young children. They are also deemed useful to prekindergarten through third grade classroom teachers as an aide in checking off the art, home economics, music and physical education skills children have mastered.
