3 Neglected, Delinquent and At-Risk Youth Education Program
Overview of title I, Part d & Title I, Part A, Neglected Set-Aside Neglected, Delinquent and At-Risk Youth Education Program

Neglected and Delinquent Children defined: Neglected = Children and youth who are in need of care due to abandonment, neglect, or death of their parents or guardians. Delinquent = Children who have been adjudicated to be delinquent or in need of supervision.

5 Overview of title I, Part d & Title I, Part A, Neglected Set-Aside
Grantees and Population Title I, Part A Provides financial assistance to LEAs and schools with high numbers or high percentages of poor children to help ensure that all children meet challenging state academic standards US ED determines the LEA Title I, Part A neglected set-aside amount based on the neglected child count derived from the N&D Annual Survey Title I, Part D Subpart 1 - Provides financial assistance to educational programs for youth in state-operated facilities or community day programs Subpart 2 - Provides financial assistance to support eligible LEA programs involving collaboration with locally operated correctional facilities

6 Overview of title I, Part d & Title I, Part A, Neglected Set-Aside
Subpart 1 Provides assistance for State Agencies: Georgia Department of Juvenile Justice (DJJ) Georgia Department of Corrections (GDC) Georgia Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Disabilities (DBHDD) Subpart 2 Provides assistance for LEAs: Working in collaboration with local residential correctional facilities (In Georgia, O.C.G.A (b) facilities MAY be eligible)

7 Overview of title I, Part d & Title I, Part A, Neglected Set-Aside
Services for N&D Children In general, the same allowable services provided under Title I, Part A are the same type of services provided to N&D residential facilities and children Resources provided to N&D residential facilities and children should supplement, and not supplant, the “regular” school program Services may include before and after school tutorials, summer school, credit recovery, educational materials and supplies, vocational education, counseling services, and more

8 Overview of title I, Part d & Title I, Part A, Neglected Set-Aside
The Title I, Part A, Neglected Set-Aside may be used in local or state RTFs for neglected or delinquent children for any of the following activities: To improve educational services by assisting students in meeting academic challenges Hire additional teachers, para professionals, educational counselors, and other staff members to provide additional instruction in areas of greatest need Train teachers, aides, and other staff members who are actively involved in providing Title I services to neglected and delinquent children Procure needed educational materials and equipment for Title I instruction, including books, computers, audiovisual equipment and supplies, and classroom materials These funds follow the same use of funds as a regular Title I, Part A allocation

24 Move Towards More— Student-Centered Learning (SCL)
Facilitate: Involve students in learning activities in class—presentations, question and answer, discussion or other activities Motivate: Give motivation and spirit to students that will build confidence. Place students at the center of learning, not teachers or the curriculum Inspire: Act as a student assistant and as a friend who can provide inspiration to students Source:

25 SCL: 7 Elements “Active rather than passive learning;
An emphasis on deep learning and understanding; Increased responsibility and accountability on the part of the student; An increased sense of autonomy in the learner;

26 SCL: 7 Elements An interdependence between teacher and learner;
Mutual respect within the learner-teacher relationship; and A reflexive approach to the teaching and learning process on the part of both teacher and learner.” Source: Lea, S. J., D. Stephenson, and J. Troy (2003). Higher Education Students’ Attitudes to Student Centred Learning: Beyond ‘educational bulimia’. Studies in Higher Education 28(3), As found in

27 SCL: 9 Principles SCL requires an ongoing reflexive process.
SCL does not have a “one-size-fits-all” solution. Students have different learning styles. Students have different needs and interests. Choice is central to effective learning in SCL.

28 SCL: 9 Principles Students have different experiences and background knowledge. Students should have control over their learning. (courses, curricula, evaluation) SCL is about enabling, not telling. Learning needs cooperation between students and staff. Source: (pp. 3-4)

29 Lorene Morrow: “I don’t know. You tell me.”
David Tumlin: “Did you read it?” Lorene Morrow: “I don’t know. You tell me.”

30 Want to Know More about SCL
Want to Know More about SCL? Here’s a Good Starting Place:


32 CENTERS / STATIONS Have “supplies and materials that work well together and give students the tools to complete activities and mini-projects” “What types of learning centers are appropriate? Classroom size, students’ interest, and grade level will help you determine your decision”

33 EXAMPLES OF CENTERS Reading / Writing / ABC / Spelling
Art / Illustration / Visual Expression Science / Experiment Music / Poetry / Listening / Biography Math / Numbers Invention / Build-It, Paint It / Puzzles / Blocks Performance / Storytelling / Drama Science / Water / Weather Social Studies / Map and Chart

Enrichment Centers Skill Centers Interest and Exploratory Centers

35 PARTS OF A CENTER Title Furniture Storage Space Materials Location
Responsibility Learning Alternatives Instructions Sequence of Activities Number of Centers Assignment Duration of Centers Management System Time Help! Assessment

36 TIPS ON CENTERS Rules, Guidelines, Expectations
Gradually Introduce Centers Timers Traffic Boards Checklists, Paper/Pencil Tasks, Other Methods of Accountability Have Mandatory and Optional Activities/Assignments at Centers

37 MIDDLE SCHOOL CENTERS Set ground rules for center usage
Include cooperative activities Select high-interest tasks Leave space around the centers Organize materials carefully Compose clear instructions

40 SIMULATIONS Allow students “to experiment with real-world activities”
“Simulation activities can give students a ‘safety net’ while they are learning” Role-Playing Debating Simulation Software

Briefing—establishing the situation Drama or Role-Play Debriefing—follow up discussion Source:

Know your students and what they can handle Goals, rules, assignments, expectations in advance Approximate reality as much as possible Let students know how they will be evaluated in advance Source:

Set a clear topic and assign contrasting viewpoint Give students time to research and prepare Opportunities to cross-examine, judge Essay, assessment, other types of follow-up Source:

It must be an appropriate game The game needs to embody the learning objectives Non-gamers need structure and support Source:

45 SIMULATIONS ON THE WEB Net Frog: Shedd Aquarium: for Students: Thinkport: Bitesize: eduweb: Mission US: A Revolutionary Way to Learn History: Gizmos: The Stock Market Game:

“If assessing learning based on game outcomes, depending on the game design, game results may or may not indicate that significant learning has occurred. (For example, even if a student ‘loses’ in a simulation, it might not mean that s/he did not learn; and alternatively, a student who faired well may have learned alternative strategies unrelated to intended learning objectives.” Source:

53 CLASSROOM SET-UP TIPS Make your crowded classroom feel bigger by:
Use tables instead of desks Use chair pockets for storage Make inexpensive cubbies using removable hooks and plastic milk crates Leave one wall completely blank. Your students are as overwhelmed by all the bodies in the room as you are Outline the borders of chalkboards and whiteboards with twinkle lights. When the class gets too noisy, turn off the main lights, and turn on the twinkling lights. The students will quiet down Use area rugs. They cut down noise and define tight spaces Think of your room in levels. Use the space above the students as well as under their desks Declutter and simplify Source:

55 A FEW GENERAL TIPS Empower children to work independently where appropriate Use colored folders Lists of things to be done Set guidelines to avoid interruptions. Use a timer You don’t have to use a completely different lesson plan for each course Carve out quiet time Source:
