Institute for Teachers and Principals on "Integrated" American History in the Inner-City Elementary Schools. Director's Report.
Wisconsin Univ., Madison. Dept. of Educational Administration.
The purposes of the Institute--to heighten the self concept and achievement of Negro youth, and to improve school-community relations in racial ghettos--are discussed in an introduction, along with the rationale, philosophical orientations, and objectives. Additional preliminary information includes a discussion of the required planning and resources used in the program operation. The Institute staff and thirty participants, chosen in administrator-teacher teams from inner-city schools, are listed. There were three phases of program operation: 1) Workshop and lectures; 2) Field testing of curriculum materials produced in Phase I; and 3) Revision of materials. Evaluation procedures on the 25 experimental and 25 control classes are detailed as an entire section on evaluation. Results of the analysis indicate that Institute participants felt positively toward the materials they produced and their experiences in the Institute. The children in the program learned more about integrated Afro-American history and enjoyed the learning process. Among other things, appendices include: Sample of curriculum materials produced; an extended list of topics, historians, and readings; samples of school visit report and log; roster of participants; and sample of posttest and pretest, with instructions.
