Followup Study of 1966 Summer Institutes for Teachers of Disadvantaged Children. Evaluation of New York City Title I Educational Projects, 1966-67.
A followup study (to ED 011 018) was conducted to obtain data concerning the impact of the 1966 Summer Institutes program on the subsequent classroom activities of the participants. The Institutes had been designed to improve the quality of instruction in public and nonpublic schools in disadvantaged areas of New York City by providing for the training of teachers, supervisors, and administrators currently teaching or preparing to teach disadvantaged students in grades one to eight. In the followup study, questionnaire data was secured from pairs of teachers (one of whom attended the summer institute and one of whom did not) within the same school and when possible teaching the same grade level. Of the 52 pairs observed, approximately half were from public and half from nonpublic schools; of the institute participants approximately half had taken one or two courses, the other half three or four. Each pair was observed during one hour of teaching by one of nine observers using a rating scale. Data was analyzed by means of analysis of variance, chi square tests, and Pearson product-moment correlations. (Findings are presented and discussed and conclusions drawn, most of them supporting the original study, with some reservations noted. Tables of data--including that on individual items in the Teacher Attitude Inventory--and the teacher questionnaire and observation rating scale are appended.) (JS)
