A Research Report of the North Carolina Advancement School: Summer Session 1968.
North Carolina Advancement School, Winston-Salem.
This is a report on the North Carolina Advancement School's eight-week summer session for sixth- and seventh-grade boys. The summer session for underachievers was limited to a residential program. The instructional program involved studying humanities, mathematics; science, and the arts with close guidance by a counselor. The results from the summer term show some changes in the boys in residence, which are apparently related to the age and grade of the student. The sixth-grade students showed greater and more consistent gains on measures of reading, achievement, and study skills; in addition, they improved their attitudes towards themselves and the School. Seventh-grade students tended to be more erratic than sixth-graders in terms of their response to the summer term; however, they showed significant gains in oral reading and work-study skills. For related reports, see UD 011 076-078 and 011 080-081. (Author/JW)
