This document is the fifth in a series of 12 early childhood program descriptions compiled by the Far West Laboratory for Educational Research and Development. The program described here is the Tucson Early Education Model (TEEM) located at the University of Arizona. The model is designed for Head Start programs and kindergarten through third grade Follow Through classes.
