Scholars in the Schools: Implementation Handbook.
Murphy, Carol J.; Pescatello, Ann
The Scholars-in-the-Schools program (SIS), previously known as Humanities-in-the-Schools (HIS), is designed to improve humanities education by placing humanities scholars in residence at a middle school or high school. The scholar works with teachers and students as a resource person in a variety of ways: as a curriculum consultant; lecturer; inservice provider; and as a coordinator for special activities such as field trips, film festivals, etc. The scholar's term of residency is dependent on the type of program the school is implementing, but usually involved a part-time commitment for at least a year. This document provides the history and description of the SIS program that was developed by the California Council for the Humanities (CCH), and discusses how a SIS program is implemented. The description of the model SIS program, developed by the CCH focuses on the objectives, key players, project activities, effectiveness of the program, and program costs. Implementation of a SIS program involves a great deal of planning. The major planning phases are the adoption decisions, the planning team, and the orientation seminar. Descriptions of SIS program monitoring and SIS program evaluation also are included. An appendix features sample evaluation instruments. (DB)
