SPRINGFIELD ELEMENTARY SCHOOL ASSEMBLY.
DONAHOE, THOMAS J.; MARTIN G.
A DESCRIPTION OF AN ASSEMBLY PROGRAM FOR SIXTH GRADE STUDENTS WHICH FOCUSES ON AREAS OF GOVERNMENT THAT DIRECTLY AFFECT STUDENTS IS PRESENTED. STUDENTS AND TEACHERS OF THE 85 SIXTH GRADE CLASSES IN THE CITY WERE ASKED TO SUGGEST TOPICS OF INTEREST TO THEM IN THE AREA OF "OUR SCHOOLS AND OUR GOVERNMENT." THESE SUGGESTIONS WERE INCORPORATED INTO A TEACHER'S OUTLINE FOR USE IN CLASSROOMS THE FOLLOWING YEAR. AN ACCOUNT OF ACCOMPLISHMENTS IN EACH CLASSROOM WAS PREPARED BY THE STUDENTS AND PRESENTED TO A GENERAL ASSEMBLY COMPOSED OF AN ELECTED DELEGATE FROM EACH OF THE 85 CLASSES. A RESOLUTION WAS PASSED BY THE DELEGATES WITH AMENDMENTS RELATIVE TO THE TOPIC, AND THE AMENDED RESOLUTION WAS VOTED UPON. THE DELEGATES GAVE AN ACCOUNT OF THE PROCEEDINGS AND DECISIONS UPON RETURN TO THEIR CLASSROOMS. OBJECTIVES OF THE TOTAL PROGRAM ARE OUTLINED. THESE INCLUDE THE DEVELOPMENT OF SKILLS IN INTERPERSONAL RELATIONSHIPS, GROUP PARTICIPATION, AND REPRESENTATIVE GOVERNMENT. AN EVALUATION OF THE PROJECT IS PRESENTED ALONG WITH A PROPOSED PROGRAM FOR THE FOLLOWING YEAR FOCUSING ON THE AREA OF THE INTERRELATED ATTITUDES OF THE CHILDREN AND VARIOUS CULTURAL GROUPS.
