Morse Crisis Intervention Center--Project Advance: Title III Project. Final Report.
District of Columbia Public Schools, Washington, DC. Dept. of Research and Evaluation.; Commonwealth Learning, Inc., Alexandria, VA.
The Morse Crisis Intervention Center is a program of survival for the youth of the D.C. Public Schools who have been removed from the public junior high school because of disruptive behavior. The Center's on-going activities were supplemented by Project Advance in the following specific areas during the 1974-75 school year: (1) Psychotherapeutic services were provided to alleviate or minimize disturbing behavior; (2) Individualized instruction was provided the students using a modified open classroom technique; and (3) Enrichment activities were provided the students. The Project Director and staff developed 23 standards, which emphasized affective, behavioral, and educational objectives. These standards formed the basis for the program evaluation. Measures of program success included a staff survey, focusing on the attainment of the 23 standards, progress on the Wide Range Achievement Test (WRAT), data from a classroom observation checklist, project director and counselor reports, and a student survey. Observational data, a student survey, A Self-Rating Scale for Students, and an Observational Rating Scale are appended. (Author/BJG)
