Dale Avenue Performance Objective Model Pre-Primary-Primary Performance Objectives Prekindergarten Through Grade Three: Manual; Record Book.
Hanson, Helen B.; Gavzy, Rita
The Dale Avenue Early Childhood Education Project was developed in the Dale Avenue School in 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. The Dale Avenue Performance Objectives, it is stated, were an outgrowth of a needs assessment. These Performance Objectives were written to provide children with experiences which are needed in order to function eventually in the formal academic areas of reading and math. Beginning with the most elementary skill which a child must master in order to perform in the prekindergarten classroom, the Performance Objectives are considered to take each child through a developmental hierarchy of skills. A record keeping book to go along with the Performance Objectives is included with the Performance Objectives in this document. The Performance Objectives act as the teacher's pretest and as a posttest. A summary record goes along with each child to his next class. This is stated to help the new teacher to ascertain what the child is able to do and to help the child to continue at his own rate. (Author/JM)
