A Search for Potential New Follow Through Approaches; Part B: Descriptions of Eighteen Potential Follow Through Approaches.
Baltzell, D. Catherine; And Others
The original plans for the Follow Through (FT) program were to provide a program extending the Head Start community action model to the public schools which would serve all disadvantaged children. Because of the small budget allocation authorized by the Congress, the United States Office of Education reformulated FT as an experimental program of "planned variation" that was to introduce systematically a variety of educational approaches into kindergarten through third grade. The experiment was to determine the relative efficacy of each approach. Presently, FT is in a period of transition as it clarifies its future focus. This study consists of a search for potential new approaches to be implemented within the FT program. This second part of a two-part report presents detailed descriptions of eighteen approaches selected as candidates for sponsorship of FT programs. (Author/MK)
