New Roles and Relationships for Students in School and Community Settings.
Paskal, Dolores; And Others
This booklet lists suggested roles and relationships based on an involvement model concerned with process as well as product. Suggested activities are based on the rationale that youth, like teachers, need a sense of genuine participation in the educational enterprise if their growing disinterest and disengagement is to be reversed. The introductory section notes the need for criteria for evaluating youth experiences in school. The major portion of the document is a checklist with brief description of approximately 40 existing and innovative student roles in schools. Main categories are (1) job experience for individuals or small groups, e.g., clerical aides, tutors, service apprentices; (2) school and community activities designed to provide needed learning and talent-exploring experiences and opportunities, e.g., student cooperative paperback and supply store, student advisory committee, science fair and art exhibits; (3) curriculum-oriented roles and relationships, e.g., elective courses or sessions developed and taught by student teams, self-directed study programs, paired learning, simulation techniques and games. Included are brief descriptions of 25 learning games produced by six different designers (Interact, Academic Games Associates, Abt Associates Inc., Science Research Associates, High School Geography Project, and Project Simile).
