FOLLOWUP ANALYSIS OF MADISON JUNIOR HIGH SCHOOL.
CLAYTON, THOMAS E.; AND OTHERS
THE STUDY IS BASED ON INTERVIEWS WITH TEACHERS, ADMINISTRATORS, AND STUDENTS AND OBSERVATIONS MADE OF CLASSES. THE OBSERVATIONS ARE COMPARED WITH OBSERVATIONS MADE 2 YEARS BEFORE THE PROGRAM BEGAN. IT IS REPORTED THAT THE CLIMATE OF THE SCHOOL HAS IMPROVED NOTICEABLY. STUDENTS RESPOND WITH GREATER INTEREST AND SPONTANEITY. TEACHER ATTITUDES ARE BETTER, AND MORALE IS HIGH. THE PHYSICAL FACILITIES HAVE BEEN IMPROVED WITH BRIGHT COLORS, LARGE BULLETIN BOARDS, DISPLAYS, BETTER LIBRARY FACILITIES AND NEW FURNITURE. PLAY AREAS AND AN ACOUSTICAL TREATMENT OF ROOMS AND HALLS ARE STILL BADLY NEEDED. TEAM PLANNING AND TEACHING ARE STILL NOT IN FULL SCALE OPERATION BUT HAVE HELPED TEACHERS, NEVERTHELESS, CLINICAL WORK IN READING SEEMS TO HAVE INCREASED THE MOTIVATION OF MANY STUDENTS. ART AND AUDIOVISUAL PROGRAMS ARE REPORTED TO HAVE RESULTED IN THE GREATEST IMPROVEMENT BY AROUSING THE CREATIVITY AND INTEREST OF THE PUPILS. GREATER COOPERATION AND COMMUNICATION AT THE ADMINISTRATIVE LEVEL ARE NEEDED. INSERVICE EDUCATION SHOULD INCREASE TEACHER INTEREST AND PROVIDE MORE PROGRAM FLEXIBILITY.
