Building Bridges: What It Takes: A Guide for Teachers and School Administrators.
DeNatale-Matthews, Gail; And Others
This booklet, designed to accompany a videotape, gives teachers and students advice on how to participate in their community and productively build upon it. Teachers who are affiliated with the REACH (Rural Education Alliance for Collaborative Humanities) advise other teachers to design their own program based on the specific community's needs. Characteristics of the programs are: student experiences, students recognition of roles in their communities, student research of communities, cooperating students and teachers working to implement programs in the communities, and students developing positive attitudes toward their communities. The most important goal of each program is that teachers find ways for students to believe in themselves and the programs in which they are involved. Contains 13 references. (JAG)
