Abstract:

A study examined the effectiveness of the Title 1 Middle School Summer program that provided students at two middle schools in the Columbus, Ohio public school district with background experiences to help them connect learning to living. Mathematics and literacy lessons were developed around travel experiences to museums, zoos, baseball games, Sea World, and German Village. The program also featured a parent component. Pupils attended the program 3 days a week for a total of 12 days during the 4-week program. Of the 45 pupils in grades 5 or 6 served, 43 (95.6%) met the attendance criterion for inclusion in the treatment group. Results indicated that (1) 90.7% of the pupils in the treatment group displayed at least two problem solving strategies; (2) 88.4% of the treatment group displayed at least 2 literacy strategies; (3) 90.7% used at least 2 types of available technology; (4) 95.3% displayed at least 2 of the positive attitudes toward learning behaviors; and (5) 56 different parents or guardians were involved in the program. Findings suggest that the program should be expanded; a follow-up study should determine how successful the summer program pupils are in the regular school-year program; and every effort should be made to include more parents in the program, especially in the area of planning. (Contains 6 figures of data. A data collection form is attached.) (rs).
