The Mount Druitt Early Childhood Project. Second Annual Report to Bernard Van Leer Foundation.
Macquarie Univ., North Ryde (Australia). School of Education.
This second report covers the activities of the Mt. Druitt Early Childhood Project during 1976. The project emphasizes a model that develops children's abilities to use particular skills to learn: making decisions, using resources, evaluating themselves, becoming more self reliant and developing a healthy self concept. The report is arranged into three major sections: Part A is a general report on the project as a whole - buildings, enrollment, curriculum materials and community involvement. Part B describes the development of each of the five programs and their activities during the year. The programs discussed are the Contemporary Australian Programs, the Competency Based Program, the Behaviourist Program, Cognitive Pre-School Program and the Home Base Program. Part C summarizes the evaluation activities which were carried out. Appendices include questionnaires, rating scales and other evaluation measures. (MS)
