Successful Strategies for Secondary Age Migrant Youth.
Morse, Susan C., Comp.; Zambrano, Myrna, Comp.
This directory describes programs that have been successful in recognizing and meeting the special needs of migrant secondary youth. It identifies 12 key components of effective service to migrant students and describes 36 migrant programs in the United States that address these components. The Interstate Migrant Secondary Team, a group of 18 educators, participated in the development of the components, around which the directory is organized. The program components include: (1) identification and recruitment of migrant students; (2) mobility/credit accrual coordination; (3) parent involvement; (4) academic assistance; (5) language/literacy; (6) extended day/year programs; (7) middle-school services; (8) counseling; (9) dropout prevention; (10) dropout services; (11) staff development and service models; and (12) career education. The booklet offers a brief discussion of each component and lists programs that focus on that area of service. Each listing includes a statement of the program's general educational approach and a description of services. The descriptions are designed to stimulate replication, adaption, and creative program development. Each listing also includes a contact name, address, and phone number. (TES)
