THE EXTENDED SUMMER PROGRAM, A TWO YEAR SUMMARY.
CATON, JAY; AND OTHERS
TO PROVIDE TEACHERS WITH TRAINING IN TEAM TEACHING, NONGRADING, AND EFFECTIVE STAFF UTILIZATION AS A MEANS OF IMPROVING PUPIL INSTRUCTION, THE EXTENDED SUMMER PROGRAM WAS CONDUCTED IN 1965 AND 1966. THE PROGRAM WAS STRUCTURED SO THAT (1) TEACHERS WERE RECRUITED FOR SPECIFIC ROLES IN A FULL-DAY PROGRAM, (2) EACH TEACHER UNDERWENT ORIENTATION EXPERIENCE, (3) TEACHERS WERE DIVIDED INTO TEAMS OF 12 WHO WERE FULLY RESPONSIBLE FOR 100 CHILDREN, (4) EACH TEAM WAS DIVIDED INTO THREE SUBTEAMS EMPHASIZING INTERDISCIPLINARY ACTIVITY,(5) EACH SUBTEAM ROTATED THROUGH THREE PHASES--PLANNING, TEACHING, AND OBSERVATION ANALYSIS, AND (6) EACH TEACHER COULD RECEIVE GRADUATE CREDIT FROM AN AFFILIATED COLLEGE OR DISTRICT-ORGANIZED INSERVICE CREDIT. STUDENTS FROM ALL GRADES WERE RECRUITED FOR THE NONGRADED PROGRAM (DIVIDED INTO ELEMENTARY, JUNIOR HIGH, AND HIGH SCHOOL GROUPS). THEIR PROGRESS WAS JUDGED ON THE BASIS OF PERFORMANCE CRITERIA WITH EACH CHILD BEING PACED ACCORDING TO HIS OWN CAPABILITY, INTEREST, AND NEED. PROJECT EVALUATION WAS BASED ON QUESTIONNAIRES AND INTERVIEWS. FINDINGS INDICATE THAT PARTICIPATING TEACHERS EXHIBITED GROWTH IN (1) ABILITY TO TEACH FOR PROCESS GOALS, (2) ABILITY TO EVALUATE PUPIL GROWTH IN RELATION TO PROCESS GOALS, (3) UNDERSTANDING THE ADVANTAGES AND DISADVANTAGES OF TEAM TEACHING, AND (4) THE USE OF PERFORMANCE CRITERIA IN DEVELOPING EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVES.
