Florida Univ., Gainesville. Inst. for Development of Human Resources.; Far West Lab. for Educational Research and Development, Berkeley, CA.
This document is the eleventh 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 Florida Parent Education program developed by Ira Gordon of the Institute for Development of Human Resources at the University of Florida in Gainesville. The Florida Parent Education Program is a Follow Through model which serves children in grades K-3. The major thrust of the program is to help parents acquire some home teaching competencies that will improve their children's intellectual behavior, self-esteem, and motivation. The Florida program hires and trains community people to work as parent educators who in turn make weekly home visits to teach parents skills to use at home with their children. 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.
