Report of the 1971 Summer Workshop.
Institute for Services to Education, Inc., Washington, DC.
Since the summer of 1967, the Institute for Services to Education (ISE) has managed summer workshops as an essential part of the Thirteen-College Curriculum Program (TCCP). The purpose of the TCCP is to develop for a group of black colleges new curriculum materials, new patterns of instruction, and new institutional structures. The work is done jointly by the faculty in the colleges themselves and the ISE staff. Results are tried out by teachers in their own classes and introduced to new teachers as they enter the program. The present report is an account of the 1971 summer workshop, by which time the program had grown from the original teachers, counselors, and directors who make up the program need to get together for an extended period of time to rethink and rework what they are doing. They need to be free from the immediate pressure of daily teaching, but under the most distant pressure of preparing materials for classrooms. This document includes general procedures of the workshops, the participants, curriculum units (English, math, social institutions, physical sciences, humanities, philosophy, counseling, and directors), facilities, and workshop schedules.
