SPRINGFIELD ELEMENTARY SCHOOL ASSEMBLY.
Springfield Public Schools, MA.
A BRIEF DESCRIPTION IS OFFERED OF THE PLANS OF AN ASSEMBLY PROGRAM FOR SIXTH GRADE STUDENTS. FOCUS IS ON THE AREAS OF GOVERNMENT WHICH DIRECTLY AFFECT STUDENTS. 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 TO BE USED IN THE CLASSROOM THE FOLLOWING YEAR DURING THE INITIAL PART OF THE TERM. AN ACCOUNT OF WHAT WAS ACCOMPLISHED 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. THE DELEGATES GAVE AN ACCOUNT OF THE PROCEEDINGS OF AND RESOLUTIONS MADE AT THE ASSEMBLY, 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. A SHORT EVALUATION OF THE PROJECT INCLUDES SUGGESTED IMPROVEMENTS IN SUCCEEDING EFFORTS OF THIS TYPE.
