Partnership in Education: School and Community Organizations Working Together To Enhance Minority Students' Ability To Succeed in High School Science and Mathematics.
Munoz, Marco A.
This paper describes an investigation of a mathematics and science focused summer program for urban minority secondary school students (N=103). The goal of the program was to enhance students' ability to succeed in high school science and mathematics courses. Situated on a college campus, the program worked with participants during four weeks of instruction in mathematics and science classes. The students had a head start on the upcoming year, reinforced their mastery of material and the opportunity to gain confidence in smaller classes where they can be successful. Concurrently with instruction to the high school students, the teachers received three hours per week of professional development. Results of pre- and posttests indicated that students' mathematics and science scores increased significantly. Teachers, participants, and parents had positive reactions to the experience. Implications for policy and practice are discussed. (Contains 12 references.) (Author/YDS)
