THE SPONSORSHIP OF EXTRACURRICULAR ACTIVITIES IN SOUTHERN DESEGREGATED HIGH SCHOOLS.
ERICKSON, RALPH J.
TO PROVIDE SPONSORS OF EXTRACURRICULAR ACTIVITIES WITH SKILLS AND UNDERSTANDINGS WHICH WILL BETTER PREPARE THEM TO HANDLE INTEGRATED SITUATIONS, THE INSTITUTE MET FOR 5 HOURS ON 15 SATURDAYS DURING THE SPRING SEMESTER, 1965-66. THE TEACHERS, MOST FROM RICHMOND-AREA SCHOOLS, WERE PRIMARILY MALE (ABOUT 50 PERCENT), NEGRO (APPROXIMATELY 75 PERCENT), JUNIOR HIGH SCHOOL (APPROXIMATELY 75 PERCENT), PHYSICAL EDUCATION TEACHERS (ABOUT 50 PERCENT). AVERAGE DAILY ATTENDANCE WAS JUST UNDER 40 STUDENTS. SESSIONS CONSISTED OF (A) A PRESENTATION BY A CONSULTANT, EITHER WHITE OR NEGRO, ON EITHER INTEGRATION OR EXTRACURRICULAR MATTERS, (B) MEETINGS OF SMALL (USUALLY 7 TO 12 STUDENTS) DISCUSSION GROUPS WHICH ANALYZED THE WEEK'S TOPIC IN VIEW OF THE CONSULTANT'S IDEAS AND THEIR OWN READING AND EXPERIENCE, (C) ROLE-PLAYING, FILMS, QUESTION AND ANSWER PERIODS WITH THE CONSULTANT, OR FURTHER SMALL GROUP WORK, AND (D) A PRESENTATION BY THE CHAIRMAN OF THE DISCUSSION GROUPS SUMMARIZING THE VARIOUS PROBLEMS CONSIDERED IN THEM. A MAJOR PROBLEM OF THE INSTITUTE WAS THE VIRTUAL ABSENCE OF ANY USEABLE BIBLIOGRAPHICAL MATERIAL WHICH RELATED INTEGRATION AND EXTRACURRICULAR ACTIVITIES. EIGHTEEN STUDENTS RECEIVED COURSE CREDIT (5 SEMESTER HOURS) FROM THE INSTITUTE, WHILE THE REMAINING STUDENTS AUDITED THE COURSE. (AW)
