PARTICIPANT-OBSERVATIONAL STUDY OF THE PRINCETON SUMMER STUDIES PROGRAM FOR ENVIRONMENTALLY DEPRIVED HIGH SCHOOL BOYS.
BRESSLER, MARVIN; WILCOX, PRESTON
A SUMMER PROGRAM WAS CONDUCTED FOR DISADVANTAGED YOUTHS TO ENGAGE IN ACTIVITIES OF CREATIVE THINKING AND EXPRESSION, WIDE EXPLORATION, FREE QUESTIONING, AND SELF-ESTEEM DEVELOPMENT. FORTY HIGH SCHOOL SOPHOMORE BOYS (PREDOMINATELY NEGRO) WERE COUNSELED, GUIDED, AND INSTRUCTED IN SUCH SUBJECT AREAS AS LITERATURE, SCIENCE, AND ART. THE RESEARCH METHOD EMPLOYED WAS PARTICIPANT-OBSERVATION, SUPPLEMENTED BY RECORD EXAMINATIONS AND SPECIALLY DEVISED SURVEYS. A POST-ANALYSIS SUGGESTED THAT MANY OF THE STUDENT PARTICIPANTS EXHIBITED INCREASED ACADEMIC PROFICIENCY, BETTER ATTITUDES TOWARD LEARNING, AND GREATER PARTICIPATION IN SCHOOL AND COMMUNITY ACTIVITIES. INDICATIONS WERE THAT A SIMILAR PROGRAM MIGHT BE ADVANTAGEOUSLY ADOPTED IN MANY GEOGRAPHICAL AREAS. (RS)
