Development and Implementation of an Eclectic Communication Skills Program in an Urban K-6 School.
Patterson, Joan S.
A model program was designed and implemented to effectively develop and maintain communication skills in the children of an urban K-6 school. The goals of the program were to reverse a trend in under-achievement in five academic areas, to identify and develop potential in communication skills in two targeted groups of children, to create staff awareness of alternatives for instruction of communication skills, and to improve interaction and involvement among teachers and parents at school and in the community. The core of the program was knowledge of the child and how he learns, and teacher competence and flexibility in offering instruction in eclectic tactics. The two targeted groups of children demonstrated skill improvement and maintenance of these skills after a period without instruction. Parents, staff, and education office personnel judged the program favorably. (Author/RLV)
