Evaluation of Seminar '68 Program ESEA (Title I).
Milwaukee Public Schools, WI.
An interschool summer seminar for high school students of varying racial and cultural backgrounds was held in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The objective of the six-week seminar, funded under ESEA, Title I, was to give the students the opportunity to learn about the patterns which constitute prejudice. Due to the late approval of the program only 49 of a projected 300 students participated. Evaluation was based on student self-evaluations of the extent of learning in eight key content areas, findings from a measure of student attitude changes, and staff appraisals of the seminar. Despite the methodological problems inherent in this assessment, the data show that the seminar "provided both intellectual and emotional stimuli for the participants....(and) reached its objectives of giving students from diverse background the opportunity to learn together about the patterns which constitute prejudice."
