Summer Educational Program for the Children of Migrant Agricultural Workers, 1976. [North Dakota].
North Dakota State Dept. of Public Instruction, Bismarck.
During the summer of 1976, North Dakota's 10 migrant centers enrolled more than 2,500 migrant children, ranging from a few days to 18 years of age. All students were entered in the Migrant Student Record Transfer System. A basic remedial program emphasizing instruction in reading, language arts, and math with some time devoted to science and social studies was offered each morning. An enrichment program which included music, physical education, arts and crafts, home economics, and industrial arts was conducted during the afternoon. One center also offered a formal Spanish class. Most centers used self-contained classrooms during the morning. The enrichment program was entirely departmentalized. Materials which were readily adapted to individualized instruction were used in the basic subject areas. Where classes were too large, small-group instruction was used. A greater emphasis was placed on Spanish cultural awareness. A remedial-needs program was conducted for pupils with no English-speaking ability. Nurseries were provided for infants. Health services were provided along with breakfasts, lunches, suppers, and snacks. Instruction in nutrition, preventive medicine, the necessity for immunizations, proper dental care, and pre-natal care was also provided for other members of the family. (NQ)
