Asian-African Pupil Resource Project. Final Program Report.
White Plains Public Schools, NY.
The White Plains Schools, both public and parochial, instituted a plan under E.S.E.A., Title III whereby selected students were given special training in the study of African-Asian cultures through the utilization of community resources. The purpose of this training was to provide a corps of trained students who would disseminate throughout the community a better understanding of the African-Asian influences on and contributions to world history. Differences and similarities between the cultures of the two continents and the cultures of the United States were emphasized. These student resource personnel were available for use primarily to work with students who are studying world history and also as speakers in the community wherever the opportunity to utilize their training occurred. This document is the final program report of the project. An evaluation is made of both procedureal and behavioral objectives. Conclusions are drawn and recommendations are made based on results of this evaluation. Included in the report is a packet of dissemination materials (correspondence, record forms, evaluation forms, data tables) which were used in the project. (Author/SHM)
