Project Success Environment: An Approach to Community Educational Improvement. End of Budget Report, Fiscal Year 1975.
Between 1970 and 1973, Project Success Environment, funded under Elementary Secondary Education Act Title III developed an effective, low-cost classroom management program for use in grades one through eight of public schools. The program provides students with maximum opportunity to experience, on an individual basis, success in school. Teachers are trained to make their expectations clear, to emphasize, and reward appropriate social and academic behavior, to ignore most inappropriate behavior, and to minimize a student's opportunity for failure. At the end of the third year of funding, the program had been implemented in 61 classrooms of the Atlanta public School System, most of them located in inner city schools. Results consistently showed reduced disruptions, increased task involvement, and a positive, non-punitive classroom environment. During year Four of funding, the project staff developed and tested an exportation model of the Success Technique. For the Fifth year of funding, project staff wished to continue to attract new consumer schools, develop further the exportation model and evaluate the success of the program in a number of additional schools. A summary of the project's efforts to accomplish these objectives, with supporting details in four appendixes, constitutes the body of this report. (Author/JM)
