Implementation of the Career Guidance Curriculum and Teacher Training. Evaluation of New York City Title I Educational Projects, 1966-67. Final Report.
Williams, Thelma M.
This report evaluates a program designed to develop a new curriculum for disadvantaged eighth and ninth grade students in New York City who were performing poorly in school (academically, socially, emotionally) and who appeared likely to become school dropouts. The evaluation--representing the work of a multidiscipline team of specialists in guidance, curriculum and teaching, special education, psychology, health education, social work, administration, sociology, science, and psychiatry--consists of five sections: (1) an introduction which provides a history and overview of the Career Guidance program and outlines evaluation procedures, (2) an evaluation of the curriculum and teacher training including methods by which curriculum guides were developed as written documents; appropriateness for students of curriculum changes made; extent to which new curricula were used by teachers; organization of the teacher training program; supervisors and other personnel; and the specific orientation or support obtained through inservice training, (3) an evaluation of equipment and staff including the services of five guidance counselors, class sizes, and utilization of the equipment in five industrial art shops, (4) an evaluation of pupils to provide a base for future evaluation of behavior and achievement as ascertained through achievement tests, and (5) conclusions and recommendations. Appended are copies of instruments and a list of the evaluation staff. (JS)
