Addy, Polly; Turner, Wayne
This report presents evaluations of the supplementary programs at Austin T. Walden Middle School, partially funded under Title I of the 1965 Elementary Secondary Education Act. The Instructional Assistance Program had such goals as: to develop lasting materials that provide a more integrated learning experience for the pupil from the inner city; to develop within the pupil an appreciation of learning and school; to create some situation/experiences which led the pupil to make appropriate decisions; and others. The Career Opportunities Program is a teacher training program. The Title I program provided appropriate and meaningful learning experiences consistent with the performance of pupils as determined by data derived from teacher evaluation, and standard and informal diagnostic instruments. The purpose of the Teacher Corps Program at Walden was to train an instructional team to use competencybased education in the inner-city schools by planning and executing activities according to pupils' needs. Also, the Teacher Corps team sponsored community activities and made the pupils' learning experiences more relevant to the community. The Program for Education and Career Exploration is a guidance program that provided experiences for second and/or third year pupils that will enable them to make realistic educational and career choices at future major decision points.
