CURRICULUM DEVELOPMENT FOR TARGET AREA SCHOOLS.
Minneapolis Public Schools, Minn.
CULTURALLY DEPRIVED CHILDREN IN TARGET AREA SCHOOLS NEED A CURRICULUM WHICH IS RELATED TO THEIR EXPERIENCE AND IS ADAPTED TO THEIR SPECIFIC NEEDS. ELEMENTARY SCHOOL CHILDREN NEED INSTRUCTION IN SUCH BASIC AREAS AS TOILET TRAINING, SPEECH, AND GETTING ALONG WITH OTHERS. LOWER CLASS JUNIOR HIGH STUDENTS FIND THE PRESSURES OF A COMPETITIVE MIXED-CLASS SCHOOL EXTREMELY FRUSTRATING. HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS FAIL TO SEE ANY RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN THEIR EDUCATION AND LIFE AS THEY LIVE IT OR THE FUTURE AS THEY SEE IT. TO DEAL WITH THESE PROBLEMS, A CURRICULUM COMMITTEE WILL BE DEVELOPED AT AN ELEMENTARY SCHOOL, A JUNIOR HIGH SCHOOL, AND A SENIOR HIGH SCHOOL. THE COMMITTEE CHOSEN BY THE FACULTY WILL CONSIST OF 50 PERCENT SCHOOL PERSONNEL, 25 PERCENT NEIGHBORHOOD AGENCY PERSONNEL, AND 25 PERCENT NEIGHBORHOOD RESIDENTS. THE COMMITTEE WILL REVIEW CHANGES TO BE TRIED, DEVELOP MATERIALS NEEDED TO ACCOMPANY THESE CHANGES, DEVELOP GUIDELINES FOR PLANNING CURRICULUM AND TECHNIQUES FOR OTHER SCHOOLS, AND PUBLISH CURRICULUM FINDINGS AND NEW MATERIALS.
