EVALUATION OF ROOSEVELT SUMMER DEMONSTRATION PROGRAM, 1967.
RICHARDSON, JOY B.
THE FIRST PART OF THIS REPORT OF A SENATE BILL 28 DEMONSTRATION PROJECT DESCRIBES THE SUMMER JUNIOR HIGH SCHOOL PROGRAM IN WHICH STUDENTS WERE OFFERED (1) LANGUAGE INSTRUCTION TO IMPROVE THEIR READING ACHIEVEMENT, (2) AN INNOVATIVE MATHEMATICS COURSE CONDUCTED BY THE "DISCOVERY METHOD," AND (3) SPANISH-ENGLISH LANGUAGE CLASSES TO ENABLE PUPILS OF SPANISH BACKGROUND TO BECOME MORE PROFICIENT IN SPANISH AND MORE APPRECIATIVE OF THEIR CULTURE. ENRICHMENT EXPERIENCES, TRIPS, AND A WEEK AT CAMP FOR 125 SELECTED STUDENTS WERE ALSO FEATURES OF THE PROGRAM. ONE OF THE PROGRAM'S GOALS WAS TO IMPROVE THE STUDENTS' SELF-IMAGE. THE PERSONNEL INCLUDED REGULAR TEACHERS, NINE STUDENT TEACHERS, NEIGHBORHOOD YOUTH CORPS STUDENTS, TEACHER AIDES, MATHEMATICS CONSULTANTS, AND TUTORIAL AIDES (NINTH AND TENTH GRADERS WHO HAD ACHIEVED WELL IN THE NEW MATHEMATICS METHOD THE PRECEDING SEMESTER). STANDARDIZED TEST RESULTS WERE OF LIMITED RELIABILITY IN EVALUATING THE PROGRAM. HOWEVER TEACHER RATINGS AND REPORTS INDICATED IMPROVEMENTS IN SKILLS, ATTITUDES, AND INTERGROUPS RELATIONS. THE SECOND PART OF THIS REPORT DESCRIBES AN INSERVICE COURSE AND WORKSHOP ON EDUCATION AND HUMAN RELATIONS OFFERED TO 39 TEACHERS IN THE OAKLAND SCHOOLS. MOST OF THEM FELT THAT THE COURSE WAS BENEFICIAL AND HAD CHANGED THEIR OWN AND OTHERS' ATTITUDES. A LONG APPENDIX CONTAINS VARIOUS RATINGS, INVENTORIES, AND EVALUATIONS OF VARIOUS ASPECTS OF THE PROGRAM. (NH)
