Middle School High School College: A Description of a Project That Worked.
Kaufman, Betsy B.
The initiation and development of the Queens English Project, a cooperative program between Queens College (New York) and five area high schools that produced a reading/writing curriculum from the junior year of high school through the freshman year of college, is described in this paper. Discussed are the educational principles on which the project is based, the cooperative efforts of college and high school faculty, the training seminars for project personnel, the methods used to teach composition (of the fable, parable, and essay), the organization of reading/writing labs in selected high schools, and the prospects for continuing the high school labs after the project ends.
