Impact of the University on Improving the Quality of Education in a Secondary School Setting.
Maddox, Kathryn; And Others
An overview is presented of a program that utilizes the abilities of a team of university professors to improve curriculum, build a staff development program, and establish diagnostic/prescriptive reading and mathematics programs in a junior high school. The school is in the inner city of Charleston, West Virginia, and its population is comprised of lower income students. Four professors, chairmen of the university's mathematics, English, social studies, and science departments, visited and worked with the staff on a regular basis for two years. A description is given of a model for staff inservice programs developed cooperatively by the university and the school. The staff improvement project is under the direction of the Teacher Corps which serves as a linking agent between the university and the school. (JD)
