Philadelphia Urban Education Network Project: Second-Year Final Report.
Haggett, William F.
The Philadelphia Urban Education Network Project is a staff development project that deals with the problems of the urban teacher and the needs of the urban students. Project activities include workshops, conferences, open houses, and teacher exchanges, all of which involve project participants. Staff development workshops are held to aid teachers develop organizational strategies, curricula, and instructional practices. All five project objectives were attained. Progress has been made in the following areas during the 1974-1975 school year: (1) an increase in the use of individualized and small group instruction; (2) an increase in the use of affective approaches in instruction; (3) training of student-teachers in an urban setting; and (4) getting the community involved in various school activities. Appendixes contain the instruments used in the study and their results. (Author/RC)
