SURVEY OF PARTICIPATING STUDENTS, THEIR REACTIONS AND APPRAISALS, 1963-1964 SENIOR SEMINAR.
FERNANDEZ, GEORGE
A PROGRAM OF INTELLECTUAL ENRICHMENT FOR SUPERIOR HIGH SCHOOL SENIORS WAS BEGUN IN 1960 BY THE SIX CENTRAL SCHOOLS OF ULSTER COUNTY, NEW YORK. ON SATURDAY MORNINGS DURING THE SCHOOL YEAR, 12 SEMINARS ARE CONDUCTED BY ACKNOWLEDGED AUTHORITIES AND NATIONALLY PROMINENT LECTURERS, WITH TOPICS VARYING FROM THE HUMANITIES TO THE ARTS AND SCIENCES. SESSIONS ARE OF 2-HOUR DURATION, FOLLOWED BY A QUESTION-AND-ANSWER PERIOD BETWEEN LECTURER AND STUDENTS. STUDENT PARTICIPANTS ARE CHOSEN ON THE BASIS OF ACADEMIC RECORDS AND ON RECOMMENDATION OF HIGH SCHOOL PRINCIPALS. SINCE STUDENT EVALUATIONS PROVIDE A CONTINUAL LINK OF REACTIONS AND OFFER THE COORDINATOR THE OPPORTUNITY TO MAKE CHANGES WHEN NECESSARY, PARTICIPANTS ARE ASKED TO GIVE THEIR OPINIONS OF THE PROGRAMS AT THE END OF THE SCHOOL YEAR. MOST STUDENTS FEEL THAT PROGRAMS SHOULD BE CONTINUED, THAT NO PERSONAL SOCIAL PROBLEMS ARE CREATED BY THEIR ATTENDANCE, THAT THEY FIND THEMSELVES DOING EXTRA READING ON SUBJECTS DISCUSSED, THAT EXPERIENCES AND KNOWLEDGE GAINED JUSTIFY THE GIVING UP OF CERTAIN SATURDAY SOCIAL FUNCTIONS, AND THAT THERE IS NO INTERFERENCE WITH THEIR HOMEWORK SCHEDULES. ATTENDANCE REPORTS ON EACH STUDENT, TOGETHER WITH REACTIONS AND APPRAISALS OF THE STUDENT GROUP, ARE INCLUDED. NAMES OF SPEAKERS AND TOPICS SINCE THE INCEPTION OF THE PROGRAM ARE LISTED.
