Training Institute for Staff Members of School Systems with Multi-Cultural Schools.
Dykes, Archie R.
This report describes a training institute for staff members of school systems with multicultural schools. Eighty members of the professional staffs of the Memphis City and Shelby County School Systems participated in the institute. The program was designed to relate to multicultural schools, school desegregation, and culturally disadvantaged children. Training sessions included lectures, large and small group discussions, field trips, demonstrations, and the use of audio-visual materials. Formal presentations before the entire group consumed approximately 15 hours weekly, and planned small group activities utilized approximately an equal amount of time. These activities were supplemented frequently with audio-visual materials and limited visitation to area schools engaged in the desegregation process. Participant response to the program was positive. Evidence indicated the participants became more knowledgeable and understanding of problems of the culturally disadvantaged and more willing to take positive action. Appendixes of related program material are included.) (Author/MJM)
