The Development and Implementation of an Articulation Model Between the Senior High School and the Feeder Intermediate School.
Starboard, James W., Jr.
The purpose of this practicum was to develop and implement an articulation model between a senior high school and a feeder intermediate school based on problems identified in a needs assessment. Treatments in the form of objectives were applied to the various problems uncovered and became the basis for the model. Subsequent evaluation indicated that all problems uncovered by the needs assessment were significantly lessened by the implementation of the objectives. The model proved effective in facilitating the physical movement and social adjustments of students as they moved from one school level to the next and in establishing communications between the professional staffs of the schools. The ten objectives of the program dealt with the meeting and planning schedule, articulation commitment and rational development, fall orientation for tenth-grade students, the individualized student orientation program, ability level assignment, professional staff meeting and planning, the interschool teacher exchange program, course familiarity of feeder school guidance staff and curriculum specialists, spring orientation for rising tenth-grade students, and parent orientation. Numerous appendixes are attached. (Author/IRT)
