Beyond Desegregation: Problem Solving in Two Elementary Schools.
Deslonde, James L.; Flach, Elisabeth G.
The Laboratory School-Teacher Education Module, funded under Title IV of the 1964 Civil Rights Act, is designed to use the situation of the integrated school as a laboratory for the study of problems of desegregation, with emphasis placed on the process of helping the entire staff of schools in transition to become involved in identifying and analyzing the problems and working toward their solutions. To carry this out, the Laboratory School staff during the year 1970-71 attempted to create forums and dialogues designed to assess school needs as seen by parents, interested community groups, and school and university personnel, and to develop and initiate programs designed to meet those needs. University of California at Riverside (UCR) students and teachers attended the Laboratory School workshops designed to meet specific needs of teachers in two Riverside elementary schools. In some cases, cooperating teachers and their UCR student teachers worked together in establishing innovations such as personalized reading programs with special attention to meeting needs of the ethnically different child. In essence, the Laboratory School activities constitute a "case study," the tracking of which is best done by close attention to the interrelated attitudes and goals of all participants. (Author/JM)
