The Nashville CLUE Approach to Urban Education.
Nashville - Davidson County Metropolitan Public Schools, TN.
The Cooperative Leadership for Urban Education (CLUE) program, funded under Title III of the 1965 Elementary and Secondary Education Act, tries to find a way of working with students in grades 5-9 that will get them vitally interested and involved in learning, that will develop in them genuine specific skills for continued learning, and that will reduce the boredom (and resulting disruption) of the school day. In this program, students investigate urban living by analyzing newspapers, pamphlets, textbooks, audiovisual resources, library books, and television programs. But most importantly, they use community resource people and sites for first-hand exploration as the city becomes their laboratory. The "Process Model for Student Involvement" has three phases. In Phase 1,"Formulating Program Design," students work to establish the content parameters for the year's study. Phase 2, "Designing Study of Specific Impact Area," lists the steps for organizing and planning an investigation of one important aspect of urban living. The steps and activities for actually carrying out and evaluating a study are specified in Phase 3, "Implementation and Evaluation of Study of Specific Impact Area." (Author/JM)
