An Experimental Peer Group Orientation Program.
Mazur, Chet, Ed.; And Others
In this experimental orientation program, peer groups work with potential high school freshmen while they are still in the eighth grade, so that transition to high school will be easier. Groups consisting of two student leaders, and 10 to 15 eighth graders, meet for three 45-minute sessions, and engage in various orientation, visiting day, and open house activities. Feedback indicates that the program is helpful to both participants and to student leaders. Of the first years' participants 60% returned evaluation surveys, and 40% of them responded positively to the program. Of the 80% of the second year's participants responding, 66% had positive feelings about the program. (Author/JLL)
