Designing and Implementing Little School Components: ESEA Title III Evaluation; Final Report.
District of Columbia Public Schools, Washington, DC. Dept. of Research and Evaluation.
Designing and Implementing Programs for the Little School Component is a program funded under Elementary Secondary Education Act Title III and designed to develop, implement, and disseminate a program of individualized instruction at the Howard D. Woodson Senior High School. This program is a third year continuation of the program initiated in 1972-73. The original 300 students entering as 10th graders in 1972-73 have continued in the program and are now in their senior year. The third year program was expected to complete the development of pilot experiences for staff and students alike in the development and implementation of individualized programs. The current year program was designed to be conducted in four phases described in the project proposal: Articulation and Planning Session, Implementation of the Little School Component, School-Year Workshop and Staff Development, and Evaluation and Redesign. Phases 2-4 were in effect concurrently from the beginning of the 1974-75 academic year while Phase 1 was conducted during the summer of 1974. The results of the evaluation discussed here are considered to clearly indicate support for the Little School Component's achievement of its goals, particulary in the areas of developing a viable program of individualized instruction and in creating a positive atmosphere for learning.
