Learning Inst. of North Carolina, Rougemont.; North Carolina Univ., Chapel Hill.; Office of Education (DHEW), Washington, DC.
THE ACTIVITIES OF AN 8-WEEK SUMMER TRAINING INSTITUTE ON PROBLEMS OF SCHOOL DESEGREGATION ARE DESCRIBED IN THIS REPORT. THE 54 PARTICIPANTS WERE RACIALLY INTEGRATED AND CONSISTED OF JUNIOR HIGH SCHOOL TEACHERS, COUNSELORS, AND ADMINISTRATORS. THE GENERAL GOAL OF THE INSTITUTE WAS TO INCREASE PARTICIPANTS' KNOWLEDGE OF UNDERACHIEVEMENT, THEIR UNDERSTANDING OF HUMAN AND RACE RELATIONS, AND THEIR SKILLS IN TEACHING IN DESEGREGATED CLASSROOMS. PARTICIPANTS RECEIVED GROUP TRAINING FROM EIGHT HUMAN RELATIONS SPECIALISTS AND WERE ENROLLED IN A GRADUATE LEVEL COURSE IN "PSYCHOEDUCATIONAL PROBLEMS OF SCHOOL DESEGREGATION." IN ADDITION, AS PART OF AN INSTITUTE PRACTICUM, THE PARTICIPANTS TUTORED AN INTEGRATED GROUP OF STUDENTS AND ENGAGED WITH THEM IN RECREATIONAL-SOCIAL ACTIVITIES. RESEARCH PERSONNEL ADMINISTERED VARIOUS ATTITUDE SCALES AND QUESTIONNAIRES TO PARTICIPANTS BOTH BEFORE AND AFTER THEIR TRAINING, AND DATA WERE GATHERED FROM THE OBSERVATIONS OF STAFF MEMBERS. THESE DATA HAVE NOT YET BEEN ANALYZED. HOWEVER, SUBJECTIVE DATA COLLECTED FROM PARTICIPANTS INDICATE THAT THEIR ATTITUDES CHANGED AND THAT THE ENTIRE PROGRAM WAS "HIGHLY SUCCESSFUL," EXCEPT THE PRACTICUM WHICH WAS RATED AS ONLY "MODERATELY SUCCESSFUL."
