A Procedure for Developing an Articulated Educational Program for a Middle School or Junior High School.
Knowles, Matthew C.
The purpose of this practicum was to develop and implement an articulated educational program for an urban middle school. In his discussion, the author identifies a number of programs that contribute to poor articulation and suggests activities that can overcome these problems. Heart of the practicum was an effort to improve articulation between one middle school and the four elementary schools and four secondary schools attended by most of its entering and graduating students. All the schools were located in Administrative District 1 of the Philadelphia School District. Data measuring the effects of the articulation project were generated through the use of surveys, student questionnaires, and official school records. The data presented suggest that a program similar to the one described in this report can effectively reduce articulation problems in an urban middle school. (JG)
