Commitment to Crisis.
Seton Hall Univ., South Orange, NJ.
In May 1971, Seton Hall University developed a 6-week program designed to alleviate the academic losses that students suffered as a result of the 11-week teachers' strike in Newark, New Jersey. This experimental design has evolved into a year-round project in Newark for 1971-72. Thirty-six prospective teachers in two high schools and 125 teachers in seven elementary schools, guided by 10 clinical professors, determined achievement levels; detected health difficulties; planned materials and methods; and instructed, counseled, and evaluated on a one-to-one and small group basis. They assisted 1,000 failing and borderline students who had various academic and personal problems. The college students and their professors worked 4 hours daily in the schools and attended afternoon evaluative, planning, and instructional minars. These seminars included topics pertinent to their experiences from psychology, philosophy, methodology, sociology, reading, counseling, and evaluative and follow-up techniques. Field work and seminar participation enabled sophomores and juniors to earn six academic credits; senior and graduate student teachers earned eight. A digest of descriptive and evaluative reports are included. (Author/MJM)
