The Improvement of an Interagency Program for Teenage Parents in a School System (And Follow-Up Report, 1978)
Korovlev, Regeena; And Others
The Teenage Parent Program in the Alexandria City Public Schools was improved in the areas of: increased attendance of pregnant teenagers and adolescent mothers; increased numbers of students earning credit for participation; utilization of a variety of instructional methods by interagency instructors; increased student comprehension of course content; increased student attendance in school post-delivery; and maintenance of 100% utilization of the Well Baby Clinic or private physician for infant care. Existing practices in providing educational programs and services to pregnant teenagers were reviewed and applied to the interagency program. Home-school counselors were supervised in their role as caseworkers for students and in their liaison role between school personnel and students and their parents. Consultation was provided to interagency instructors at monthly planning meetings. Inservice education sessions conducted for these instructors focusing on: resequencing of course content, basing instruction on specific objectives, developing appropriate instructional methods, and engaging the students in a variety of creative learning activities. Multiple choice reviews (tests) were developed from instructors' objectives. Each class session was observed; these observations were recorded on an adaptation of the Flanders Interactional Analysis form. (Author)
