Developing a Postwar Community School Program Through the High School Social Studies of the Furney Richardson School
Date of Award
Master of Science
When the investigator launched into the problem of planning a post war program for the school through the social studies, certain questions arose- What is expected of the rural schools after the war? What can I do as a teacher of the social studies to achieve other outcomes rather than mere mastery of content? How can I arouse more interest in problems of today affecting these rural children? These questions and many more were in the mind of the writer.
This study was made first to find the needs of the community so as to enrich the program that is to be suggested; to accept the responsibility for making the social studies program effective and significant in the lives of rural boys and girls in the Furney Richardson School and in the Community; and to make school work much more alive and interesting.
The study includes eighty-two Negro families visited in the Grove Island District. The families are those who live in the district, and those families who live in the district with their children, only during the school term.
