Administrator's Guide for the Dale Avenue Project: A Performance Objective Curriculum for Prekindergarten through Third Grade.
Hanson, Helen B.
The Dale Avenue Project was developed in the Dale Avenue School, Paterson, New Jersey through funding from 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 ESEA 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. This manual is stated to have been prepared as a guide for the administrator who is responsible for the introduction, maintenance, and evaluation of the Dale Avenue Project in any educational setting. The Dale Avenue Project: A Performance Objective Curriculum for Prekindergarten through Third Grade is considered to have been successful in raising the academic performance level of urban, educationally disadvantaged children to the national norm. The curriculum is divided into ten areas that were determined by a needs assessment carried out by the original project's development staff. The Performance Objectives in each area begin with the minimal skill that a child must exhibit in order to enter prekindergarten and progress to complex skills that are consistent with the developmental capabilities of third grade children.
