Ferguson, Jessie; Bulach, Clete
Research in Middle Level Education Quarterly, v20 n2 p1-21 Win 1997
The "Shadow" program at a middle school in Atlanta allows fifth graders to "shadow" sixth grade middle students to ease transition from elementary school. This study used questionnaires to compare the social adjustment of program participants and non-participants, as well as teacher attitudes toward the program. Results showed a significant difference in adjustment scores and supportive staff attitudes. (EV)
