A CORE PROBLEM ON SAFETY, TEACHING CORE.
LONG, SADIE
A TRAFFIC ACCIDENT MOTIVATED A GROUP OF EIGHTH-GRADE CIVICS STUDENTS TO FORM DIFFERENT COMMITTEES TO OBTAIN A TRAFFIC GUARD FOR THEIR SCHOOL. COMMITTEES WERE FORMED TO CONTACT THE POLICE DEPARTMENT BY LETTER AND INTERVIEW, TO TAKE PICTURES OF THE STREET CORNER AND MAKE CHARTS SHOWING ITS DANGER, TO DO RESEARCH ON CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS OF CITIZENS, AND TO CONDUCT HOUSE-TO-HOUSE INTERVIEWS WITH REFERENCE TO ACCIDENTS ENCOUNTERED IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD. THE STUDENTS ESTABLISHED THE FACT THAT THIS WAS A GROUP EFFORT TO PREVENT ACCIDENTS. STUDENTS WERE INSTRUCTED IN INTERVIEWING, LETTER WRITING, AND METHODS OF RESEARCH AND DATA COLLECTING. STUDENTS LEARNED TO SPEAK BEFORE GROUPS AND IMPROVED THEIR MANNER OF WRITING LETTERS. GROUPS LEARNED TO ORGANIZE THEMSELVES AND TO WORK WITH OTHERS. THIS ARTICLE WAS PUBLISHED IN "TEACHING CORE," VOLUME 12, NUMBER 2, NOVEMBER 1963.
