The educational model presented in this document synthesizes behavioral and developmental orientations in order to address certain school problems of low-income children. These problems include poor reading, math, and language arts skills; insufficient problem solving skills; and inadequate parent involvement and influence in children's formal education. The document outlines the major components of the model, provides methods to implement and evaluate the model, describes how the model was designed, gives results of evaluation data collected at two sites which adopted the model, and discusses the process whereby the University of Kansas implemented the model. Also included are various examples of key experiences for different grade levels. (DB)
