Report of the Westside Workshop on Teacher Training and Curriculum Adaptation in the Inner City; An Institute to Help Teachers Develop and Adapt Instructional Materials..., February, 1966 - February, 1967.
Levine, Daniel U.; And Others
The purposes of this project were (1) to help teachers prepare "consumable" instructional materials appropriate for students in a desegregated elementary school and a desegregated junior high school in a low-income neighborhood, (2) to encourage the teachers to use these materials and duplicating and audiovisual equipment placed in their schools, and (3) to offer undergraduate education majors preservice experience in a disadvantaged school with good educational practices. It was found that the project stimulated new instructional practices but did not cause continuing change in the teachers' classroom techniques. During this period teachers were reluctant to deal with the problems of intergroup relations and student self-concept, and the students' academic performance did not measurably improve as a result of the project. Examples of duplicated materials used in classroom lessons are included. (EF)
