PADS: Pupil Adjustment in a Desegregated Setting. ESEA Title IV, Part C. Project Termination Report, September, 1977 - August, 1980.
Gerboc, Ronald E.
The Pupil Adjustment in a Desegregated Setting (PADS) project was carried out in three stages. During the first year of operation, curriculum materials were developed for use in desegregated classrooms in grades six through ten. The PADS materials focus on human relations and the cognitive and affective concepts crucial to group development. Program evaluation materials were also identified during the first year. The second year of the project was devoted to further refinement of the curriculum materials and the development of field test procedures. At this time a pilot field test of the materials was carried out in workshops and classrooms with parents, students, teachers, and counselors from the Cleveland (Ohio) City School District participating. During the third year, the PADS materials were more extensively field tested. Evaluative findings indicated that the materials were effective and were considered by educators to be a valuable tool for teachers working in desegregated settings. Tables of data are included and evaluative information is appended. (MK)
