Children's Demonstration School. Project CHILD. Implementation Guidebook Series.
Lewis, Marjorie; And Others
Using Project CHILD's Demonstration School as an example, the guidebook is designed to help administrators and directors/coordinators interested in initiating or expanding a summer program for migrant or other children. Activities of the school are described, with approximately 100 children participating in groups of 15 to 20 and working from 4 homebase rooms. Proceeding on an individual basis, teachers work with the children in the academic skill areas of reading and math in correlation with social skills, skills development, self-concept, language arts, health and nutrition, decision making, cultural enrichment, and career education. Field trips supplement individualized activities. The older children segment stresses work experience, vocational exploration, and survival skills training. Adult migrants are encouraged to attend with the children when possible and are assisted in developing skills needed for economically independent, self-supporting adults. In addition to program objectives and an overview, the document provides guidance in planning the program (identify a planning committee, identify resources, prepare budget, etc.), program recruitment/enrollment, staff development, implementing direct service, career education, adult education, and evaluating and monitoring. Appendices include job descriptions and samples of forms, a planning checklist, a pre- and post-evaluation chart, a community resources reference guide, and a staff evaluation and suggestions questionnaire.
