Community School District 18, Brooklyn, NY.
Elementary and junior high schools in Community School District 18 in Brooklyn, New York, participated in a project to develop and implement a comprehensive system of guidance, counseling, and curriculum. The following major activities were accomplished: (1) research and review of existing programs and materials; (2) design of a comprehensive management and instructional delivery system which can be readily applied to elementary and junior high school environment; (3) development of program and subprogram objectives activities, and materials around a cluster of emerging technologies and related careers (five modules were developed); (4) development of user guides to ensure the transportability of both the management system and the curricular materials; (5) development of pedagogical in-service training agendas and workshops in the application of the user guides, comprehensive system, and program materials; (6) selection of demonstration schools for the implementation of the comprehensive system (two schools with the target population of 117 pupils served as pilot sites); and (7) development of a district, community-wide data bank of human resources. Two behavioral objectives were the focus of the evaluation: (1) to improve teacher motivation and service skills, and (2) to improve student self-concept, motivation, and peer interaction skills. The BRACE (Behavior Ratings and Analysis of Communication in Education) instrument was used to collect data. The evaluation is still in progress, but data accumulated thus far indicate positive results. (Instructional modules and User Guides are appended.) (BM)
