A Report on the Baltimore City Public Schools' Workshop for Teachers of Disadvantaged Vocational Students, Summer, 1973.
Resurreccion, Richard L.
To help teachers develop effective procedures for dealing with disadvantaged vocational students, the Baltimore City Public Schools sponsored a summer workshop in cooperation with the College of Education at the University of Maryland. As a result of this workshop, teachers were to a) become sensitive to the problems of disadvantaged students, b) recognize different value systems affecting behavior, c) become familiar with innovative educational techniques, d) learn to use effective instructional methods with slow learners, e) be exposed to the concept of team teaching, f) learn ways of improving the relationship between academic and shop studies, g) learn procedures that would minimize discipline problems, h) experiment with several instructional methods; and i) be able to write their program objectives behaviorally. Workshop participants agreed that the workshop met its stated objectives, that the instructional staff and resource personnel performed excellently, and that the workshop program should be continued. Recommendations for future workshops included greater participation by supervisors and administrators; representation at the workshops of labor unions and community religious leaders; use of field trips; and broadened workshop time, scope, and research.
