CATS (Center for Alternative Teaching Strategies)--Developing the Humane Society.
Silverman, N. Paul
Project CATS (Center for Alternative Teaching Strategies), a series of workshops which focused on process as a product in itself and the importance of affective education, is described in this paper. The target population was originally 70 fourth- through seventh-grade teachers of the Oak Park, Michigan, school district, that is, all language arts and social studies teachers at those levels. The year's program was structured into eight sections, each section having a particular theme which was presented four times to four different groups of teachers. Three full-day sessions and five half-day sessions were held during the year. Government monies paid for the released time for teacher attendance. Attendance at the first workshop was mandatory; all subsequent attendance was voluntary. The basic philosophy of CATS was to offer alternative strategies and action techniques that had been proven effective on a cross discipline and cross grade level. Each workshop is described and the accomplishments of the project are listed. (TS)
