A Research Report of the North Carolina Advancement School: Summer Session, 1969.
Godfrey, Ernestine, Ed.
This report of the North Carolina Advancement School is the fifth in a series of research reports describing results derived from working with underachieving boys. The purpose of the school is to define and identify possible causes and remedies of underachievement. Analysis of the data obtained on fourth- and fifth-grade boys who attended the school during the summer of 1969 indicates that significant changes resulted in several areas. One year after returning to their home school, both groups of students evidenced a greater ability to assume responsibility for their own learning, less alienation from school, and improved academic performance. Fourth-graders showed more improvement in behavior, while those in grade 5 made greater improvement in grades. On the basis of these results, there are indications that younger students benefit more from a program designed to remedy underachievement. The students involved in this study will continue to be the subjects of follow-up studies. [For related reports, see ED 045 761-765, and UD 011 487.] (Author/JW)
