REACH Report to the Rockefeller Foundation. Revised.
This document summarizes the activities of REACH, the Rural Education Alliance for Collaborative Humanities. REACH is an effort to strengthen rural education in South Carolina through writing and the study of local history and culture. Among REACH projects are the REACH School Programs, fostering student created research on the history and lifestyles of the state's communities. The South Carolina Network for Educational Telecomputing links teachers, students, scholars, and others into an interactive learning community. South Carolina's Cultural Memory, another REACH campaign, is a summer teacher development institute series focusing on South Carolina's cultures. REACH's South Carolina Curriculum Congress is a professional development program for teachers, college faculty, state agencies, business, and parents. South Carolina Cross-Age Tutoring enables students to learn by having them teach. Writing and Performing Across Cultures uses improvisation and drama to motivate students and improve writing. Writing for the Public involves students in collecting, analyzing, and rewriting public documents. The report includes sections on "Accomplishments and Primary Areas of Impact," collections of exhibits relating to ongoing projects, and bylaws and other materials concerning the Curriculum Congress. A basic evaluation packet for the project, "Transforming Stories for Many Voices," includes a summary of Project REACH, descriptions of individual projects, a basic assessment model, and implementation strategies.
