Proposal for a Program of Staff Development Designed to Implement Positive Multi-Cultural Program Offerings in an Integrated School System with Emphasis on a New Social Studies Concept. Final Report.
Carson, Frankie M.
This proposal suggests staff programs for implementing better cultural and racial relations in an integrated school system in Burke County, North Carolina. Specifically, new instructional challenges for interracial classrooms, such as inclusion of black history and culture, are studied. Also, ways to involve staff in new understanding and skills are considered. Methods actually used include an orientation workshop for teachers, group meetings, in-service training programs, and visitations. Some of the frustration and anxieties of staff were relieved after group meetings and workshops on black history were conducted. Throughout, there were indications of attempts to enrich the program with multi-ethnic materials. The awareness of the need to improve the instructional program and the willingness on the part of the administration, teachers, and students to accept the challenge and responsibility, were considered achievements.
