National Diffusion Network: Project Enrichment Exemplary Program.
Callard-Szugit, Rosemary
The United States Department of Education recognizes and supports exemplary programs through the National Diffusion Network (NDN). Established in 1974, NDN is based on the belief that there are few problems encountered by schools that have not been solved successfully in some other location. The primary function of NDN is to disseminate information about approved programs so that educational agencies with special needs may choose from an array of programs and select that particular program which meets the agencies' needs, philosophy, and resources. Project Success Enrichment (PSE) is one exemplary program. As a model program to enrich and extend language arts, PSE was originally designed for gifted and talented students. It is now serving students in the regular classroom, special education, Chapter 1, multicultural, and at-risk students. The academic objectives and ability development objectives of PSE are listed and an introductory activity in language arts is presented. PSE also includes units in visual arts. As a statistically proven program in reading, writing, and literary analysis, PSE requires and teaches students to use higher level thinking rather than engaging in a "fill in the blanks" type of learning.
