Project SEE [Specific Education of the Eye]: Title III Project 71-084.
Union City Board of Education, NJ.
Project SEE (Specific Education of the Eye), a three-year old ESEA Title III funded program, is stated to be designed to train kindergarten and Grade 1 children in perceptual motor skills by developing visual perception through a series of sequenced visual exercises which the child analyzes, elucidates on, relates to, and replicates. The development of visual sensory skills provided by the project is regarded as a basic preparation for learning. Curriculum materials used include visuals; "out of sight"-a game played like bingo; and, the most recent development, that of three-dimensional visuals called tactuals. For evaluation purposes, children exposed to the program have been pre- and post-tested with a staff designed test, the Knobler Perceptual Development Series Test. Supplemental subjective measures of the program's results have been obtained through a survey of teachers' opinions and observations of childrens' responses. Recognized as innovative and exemplary by the Office of Program Development, New Jersey Department of Education, Project SEE cites as preliminary findings its extension from pre-school to eighth grade and its usage by pre-reading and remedial reading programs.
