A PROJECT TO DEVELOP A CURRICULUM FOR DISADVANTAGED STUDENTS IN THE INTERMEDIATE SCHOOL (MIDDLE SCHOOL).
LONG, CHARLES M.
THE BOARD OF EDUCATION TASK FORCE REPORTS ON THE DEVELOPMENT OF CURRICULUMS FOR INTERMEDIATE (MIDDLE) SCHOOLS ARE EVALUATED IN THIS STUDY. A TEAM OF EDUCATORS AND CONTENT SPECIALISTS EXAMINED THE MATERIAL WITHIN THE FRAMEWORK OF SPECIALLY PREPARED GUIDELINES AND THE PREVIOUSLY STATED OBJECTIVES FOR MIDDLE SCHOOLS--TO DEVELOP THE INSIGHTS, UNDERSTANDINGS, AND APPRECIATIONS NECESSARY FOR THE UNDERPRIVILEGED CHILD TO LIVE COMPETENTLY IN A LARGE CITY AND TO PLAN EFFECTIVE CURRICULUMS IN MATHEMATICS, SCIENCE, FOREIGN LANGUAGES, TYPEWRITING, ENGLISH, LANGUAGE ARTS, HISTORY, SOCIAL SCIENCES, ART, MUSIC, URBAN LIVING, INDUSTRIAL ARTS, AND HEALTH EDUCATION. IN ADDITION, THE CURRICULUMS ARE APPRAISED IN RELATION TO THE IDEAS AND PRACTICES OF FIVE SELECTED, DESEGREGATED NEW YORK CITY SCHOOLS WHICH SERVE DISADVANTAGED CHILDREN AND ARE MEETING MIDDLE SCHOOL OBJECTIVES SUCCESSFULLY. COMPARISONS ARE MADE ALSO WITH CURRICULUM DEVELOPMENTS IN LOS ANGELES, CHICAGO, AND PHILADELPHIA. RECOMMENDATIONS FOR IMPROVING THE CURRICULUM PROJECT AND THE IMPLEMENTATION OF THE MIDDLE SCHOOL CONCEPT ARE INCLUDED. THE APPENDIXES CONTAIN A STUDY OF THE ACADEMIC ACHIEVEMENT OF THE PUPILS IN THE FIVE INTEGRATED SCHOOLS, THE SUGGESTED GUIDELINES FOR USE BY SPECIALISTS IN DEVELOPING THE NEW CURRICULUMS, AND THE ACTUAL EVALUATIONS OF THE AVAILABLE TASK FORCE REPORTS.
