City Univ. of New York, NY. Hunter Coll.
The purpose of this institute was to prepare written materials that would aid local school supervisors in the development of community awareness through clinical experiences. Fifteen participants were selected from cities located in 10 different states and the District of Columbia. Institute members participated in at least two activities, the purpose of which was to develop guides to follow in arranging similar experiences and to increase their own sensitivity to the environment of poverty. Participant reactions are recorded for 22 clinical experiences along side a description of the experience, purposes of the project, and steps to be followed in the organization of the experience. Clinical experiences were provided in the areas of orientation experiences, interviews with disadvantaged students and with parents of disadvantaged students, agency visits, cooperation with the business community, and visits to the peripheral environment. Also included are annotated bibliographies and program descriptions covering films strips of Negro leaders, sociological and psychological backgrounds of the disadvantaged, new teaching methods, and current supplementary textbook material.
