Appalachia Preschool Education Program. Program Summary.
Appalachia Educational Lab., Charleston, WV.; Far West Lab. for Educational Research and Development, Berkeley, CA.
This document is the tenth 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 Appalachia Preschool Education Program developed by the Appalachia Educational Laboratory. The Appalachia Preschool Program is a demonstration project designed to provide preschool education for children from rural Appalachia. The program is oriented to the home rather than to a central nursery school, because the sparse population is scattered over a large area with poor access roads. The program consists of three major components: a television program, a home visitor program, and a mobile classroom program. Included in the program description are brief outlines of: (1) goals and objectives, (2) content and materials, (3) classroom activities, (4) parent involvement, (5) professional and paraprofessional training, (6) administrative requirements and costs, (7) program development and evaluation, and (8) program history and present (1971) status.
