Project: Ways to Improve Education in Desegregated Schools (WIEDS)--Final Interim Report, June 1, 1978 to November 30, 1979.
King, A. L.; Roberson, Don R.
The purpose of this project has been to develop an information base about successful desegregation/integration strategies for use in developing a set of models and guidelines to aid schools in planning staff development activities. Part of the development of the data base included interviews with administrators, teachers, students, and parents, and an analysis of selected staff development/inservice education (SD/IE) programs. This report describes the activities undertaken to accomplish the interviews and the analysis of SD/IE programs. Included are data on important desegregation related needs and ways to meet those needs. The need areas include (1) cultural awareness; (2) human relations; (3) curriculum integration; (4) pupil self-concept/motivation/discipline; (5) dropouts/suspensions/expulsions; (6) teaching methods and learning styles; (7) parental involvement; (8) resegregation; (9) segregation within the classroom and extracurricular activities; (10) the relationship between bilingual education and desegregation; and (11) effective SD/IE. Strategies to meet these needs are grouped and analyzed under eight goal areas. (Author/RLV)
