Planning Educational Change. Volume 3: Integrating the Desegregated School.
Chesler, Mark; And Others
This manual has been designed to assist teachers and principals to achieve integrated schools, primary attention being focused on the problems of racial integration--the issues between blacks and whites in the schools. Chapters deal with the following: the meaning of integration and of planning for school change, delineating a six-stage scheme for this process; information for principals and teachers about the important diagnostic stage; the role and activities of the classroom teacher, especially in regard to academic instruction and race relations in racially mixed classes; the principal as the school's administrative and educational leader and his relationship to the various people and groups important in effecting integration; and, the change processes necessary for the attainment of quality education in any school and their particular application to integrated schools. An annotated bibliography summarizing the issues and perspectives expressed in the manual is included. Appendixes carry examples and illustrations of some of the issues and points raised in the manual, such as diagnosis of the class, role playing in the class, curriculum on racism, class discussions of feelings and perceptions, diagnosis of school-wide sentiment, and principal designs for problem solving. [A phonograph record for use with the document is not available from EDRS but comes with the manual available from the Superintendent of Documents.] (RJ)
