THE HARVARD-BOSTON SUMMER PROGRAM IN URBAN EDUCATION, 1965.
THE PROGRAM OFFERS EXPERIENCED SCHOOL PERSONNEL A CHANCE FOR SUPERVISED INQUIRY AND EXPERIENCE IN THE FIELDS OF INSTRUCTION, SUPERVISION, ADMINISTRATION, AND GUIDANCE, WITH EMPHASIS ON THE SPECIAL PROBLEMS OF URBAN SCHOOLS. THE PROGRAM HOPES TO EXAMINE VARIOUS PROBLEMS OF CURRICULUM DEVELOPMENT, TEACHING PROCEDURE, SCHOOL AND STAFF ORGANIZATION, AND INSERVICE STAFF DEVELOPMENT. TWO TYPES OF PARTICIPANTS WILL BE PARTICIPATING IN THE PROGRAM. A GROUP OF ELEMENTARY SCHOOL STUDENTS WILL ATTEND MORNING CLASSES AND AFTERNOON RECREATION ACTIVITIES. A SECOND GROUP, COMPOSED OF ADULTS, WILL PLAN, TEACH, AND OBSERVE THE CHILDRENS' CLASSES IN THE MORNING AND ATTEND GRADUATE WORK CLASSES DURING THE AFTERNOON. THE ADULTS WILL BE ABLE TO ENGAGE IN SUPERVISED CURRICULUM PLANNING AND TEACHING UNDER CLINICAL CONDITIONS. THEY WILL BE URGED TO PAY MORE ATTENTION TO TEACHING PUPILS HOW TO ACQUIRE, INTERPRET, EVALUATE, AND COMMUNICATE KNOWLEDGE. THE PROGRAM WILL ALLOW ITS ADULT STUDENTS TO EXPLORE THE HUMAN DIFFERENCES FOUND IN URBAN SCHOOLS. TEAM-TEACHING WILL ALLOW STUDENT TEACHERS TO LEARN PROBLEMS OF LEADERSHIP. BESIDES THE PRACTICUM ACTIVITIES FOR TEACHERS, ADMINISTRATORS AND GUIDANCE COUNSELORS, AFTERNOON SEMINARS WILL BE HELD IN GUIDANCE, AND IN THE TEACHING-LEARNING PROCESS. GRADUATE CREDITS WILL BE GIVEN FOR COMPLETED WORK.
