Educational Opportunities for Minority Students: Lessons Learned from a Summer High School Math and Science Program.
Munoz, Marco A.; Clavijo, Catherine
Two topics are currently being greatly discussed in educational literature: (a) summer programs and (b) minority in mathematics and science. The Lincoln Foundation summer program provided participants with 4 weeks of instruction in math and science. The goal of the program was to enhance students' ability to succeed in high-school level mathematics and science courses. The evaluation design called for the use of a pre- and post-test and parent and teacher surveys. The data indicated that the program is achieving its objective of increasing students' content knowledge in the various subject areas. The results of the parent survey indicated the high levels of satisfaction with the program. Results from the teacher survey showed overall agreement with the professional development model and instructional support. Highlighted curricular methods include: cooperative learning; activity-based lessons; and small group techniques. Implications for practice and recommendations for improvement are included.
