The School Playground and School Climate: Project Intervention Activities at Crissey Elementary School. Teacher Corps Program '79. The University of Toledo/Springfield Local Schools.
Toledo Univ., OH. Coll. of Education.
At the Crissey Elementary School (Ohio), project intervention activities by Teacher Corps interns focused on student playground-related behaviors and activities. Primary responsibility for identified kinds of activities was assigned to the interns: (1) playground program; (2) community involvement; (3) special events; and (4) classroom activities. The playground program included organizing students to use existing equipment and games appropriately. Community involvement focused primarily on fixing up the playground and existing equipment and on adding some new equipment. Two special events were an after-school volleyball game for the school staff and interns, and a square dance for the sixth grade students. Classroom instructional activities, in addition to "class meetings," included a 4-day unit on safety to and from school for kindergarten through third grade students and a 3-day unit on cooperation for fourth through sixth grade students. "Class meetings" were conducted by the interns to stimulate school pride and give positive direction for student and staff enthusiasm. Student and staff comments on the program and staff assessments of individual intern performance indicate that the project was viewed positively and enthusiastically by students and staff. (JD)
