PURPOSE, PROCESS, AND PRODUCT AS IT RELATES TO MADISON JUNIOR HIGH SCHOOL, A REPORT OF THE 1963-64 SCHOOL YEAR.
BONGO, JOSEPH
THE PROJECT'S PURPOSE IS TO EDUCATE CHILDREN TO THEIR FULLEST POTENTIAL, ENABLING THEM TO ACCEPT PROMISING OPPORTUNITIES AS THEY ARISE. THE GOALS ARE SIMILAR TO THOSE OF MOST OTHER SCHOOLS, BUT THE PROJECT DIFFERS WITH RESPECT TO THE PROCESS OF EDUCATION. SOME OF THE CHANGES IN PROCESS BEGUN DURING THE FIRST YEARS OF THE PROGRAM INCLUDED--THE ADDITION OF COMPENSATORY SERVICES AND GREATER NUMBERS OF STAFF PERSONNEL, THE DEVELOPMENT OF A MECHANICAL SCHEDULE WITH FLEXIBILITY TO MEET EDUCATIONAL NEEDS, THE IMPLEMENTATION OF NEW PROGRAMS SUCH AS TEAM TEACHING, PERSONALITY GROUPING, GROUP GUIDANCE, AUDIO-VISUAL PROGRAMS, A WORLD-OF-WORK PROGRAM, INSERVICE TEACHER TRAINING, AND PROGRAMED INSTRUCTION, AND AN IMPROVED IN-SCHOOL CLIMATE. INDICATIONS OF GROWTH WITHIN THE PROJECT DURING THE 1963-64 YEAR WERE--INCREASED ATTENDANCE, A DECREASED DROPOUT RATE, AND IMPROVED ACADEMIC STANDING BASED ON DIAGNOSTIC TESTS IN ARITHMETIC, ENGLISH, AND SOCIAL STUDIES. REPORTS BY STAFF MEMBERS ALSO INDICATED SUCCESS AND GROWTH OF SCHOOL PROGRAMS SUCH AS GROUP GUIDANCE, AFTER-SCHOOL ACTIVITIES, FIELD TRIPS AND CULTURAL ENRICHMENT, PERSONALITY GROUPING, AUDIO-VISUAL ACTIVITIES, LIBRARY SERVICES, AND A WORK EXPERIENCE PROGRAM.
