    Type of Review: New.
    Title: The Effectiveness of a Program to Accelerate Vocabulary 
Development in Kindergarten.
    Frequency: Semi-Annually.
    Affected Public: Individuals or household; State, Local, or Tribal 
Gov't, SEAs or LEAs.
    Reporting and Recordkeeping Hour Burden:
     Responses: 4,294.
     Burden Hours: 1,208.
    Abstract: The proposed project is a multi-year data collection 
effort to evaluate the effectiveness of PAVEd for Success (PAVE), an 
intervention designed to improve teachers' vocabulary instructional 
practices and thereby promote vocabulary development among 
kindergarteners in the Delta region of Mississippi. The children in 
this region are well behind national averages in vocabulary skills, and 
vocabulary knowledge is an essential component of literacy development 
that has generally been difficult to improve. The PAVE program is one 
vocabulary program that has shown promise, but more rigorous testing is 
required to establish evidence of its effectiveness. The study sample 
will include 120-160 teachers, and 1,200-1,600 kindergarten students in 
a randomized control trial in 60-80 schools. Student's literacy skills 
and teacher's literacy instruction practices will be assessed to 
determine the impact of PAVE on students and teachers.
