HUNNICUTT, C.W.; SHEPARD, SAMUEL A., JR.
THIS SUMMARY REPORT OF A 1965 SUMMER INSTITUTE ON URBAN ELEMENTARY SCHOOL DESEGREGATION IS PRESENTED IN EXTENSIVE APPENDIXES. THE FIRST INSTITUTE WAS CONDUCTED AT SYRACUSE UNIVERSITY (NEW YORK), FOLLOWED BY ONE IN THE BANNEKER DISTRICT IN ST. LOUIS, MISSOURI, AND BY VISITS AND CONFERENCES IN AKRON, OHIO, AND SYRACUSE. INCLUDED AMONG THE APPENDIXES ARE BIBLIOGRAPHIES ON TOPICS RELEVANT TO THE PROBLEMS OF URBAN NEGROES AND A LIST OF CHILDREN'S BOOKS ON NEGRO AMERICAN LIFE. ONE APPENDIX CONTAINS THE QUESTIONNAIRES GIVEN TO PARTICIPANTS IN THE INSTITUTES. ACCORDING TO DATA COMPILED FROM THE FIRST QUESTIONNAIRE, THE THREE MOST URGENT CLASSROOM PROBLEMS WERE ADAPTING INSTRUCTIONAL MATERIALS, CLASSROOM GROUPING, AND PUPIL MOTIVATION. A FOLLOWUP QUESTIONNAIRE ASKED THE PARTICIPANTS IN THE SYRACUSE INSTITUTE HOW SUCCESSFULLY THEY FELT THE INSTITUTE DEALT WITH URBAN SCHOOL PROBLEMS. EVALUATIVE DATA ON THE SUPPLEMENTARY INSTITUTE IN ST. LOUIS AND ON THE CONSULTATIONS IN SYRACUSE AND AKRON ARE ALSO GIVEN. AN ADDITIONAL APPENDIX REPORTS SOME OF THE CONTENT COVERED BY THE TWO INSTITUTES, AND INCLUDES A TEAM REPORT ON WAYS TO INVOLVE NEGRO PARENTS IN THE EDUCATION OF THEIR CHILDREN, INFORMATION ON THE BANNEKER STUDY-IN PROGRAM, A DISCUSSION OF SCHOOL AND COMMUNITY RELATIONS, AND SUGGESTIONS FOR CLASSROOM ROUTINE AND DISCIPLINE AND FOR EFFECTIVE READING INSTRUCTION.
