WESNER, GORDON E.; AND OTHERS
THE 6-YEAR SEQUENCE AVOIDS NEEDLESS REPETITION IN COURSE OFFERINGS. ADAPTED COURSES WERE DEVELOPED TO MEET THE NEEDS AND INTERESTS OF STUDENTS LESS WELL QUALIFIED TO PURSUE GENERAL ACADEMIC COURSES. APPROPRIATE TEXTUAL MATERIALS AND LEARNING EXPERIENCES WERE GEARED TO MINIMUM ESSENTIALS. EACH YEAR'S PROGRAM IS OUTLINED BY UNIT AND INCLUDES AUDIO-VISUAL AIDS, TEACHER AIDS, AND EXTENSIVE RESOURCES FOR THE TEACHER AND STUDENT. EACH GENERAL COURSE DESCRIPTION IS FOLLOWED BY A DESCRIPTION OF AN ADAPTED COURSE FOR THE SAME SUBJECT AREA. THE SEVENTH AND EIGHTH GRADE COURSES ARE GENERAL IN NATURE AND ARE DESIGNED TO INCREASE THE AWARENESS OF THE STUDENT IN SOCIAL STUDIES. BOTH COURSES EMPHASIZE UNITED STATES HISTORY AND PROVIDE NO ADAPTATION FOR LESS ABLE STUDENTS. THE REQUIRED COURSES INCLUDE CITIZENSHIP IN GRADE NINE, AND AMERICAN HISTORY IN GRADE ELEVEN. TENTH GRADE ELECTIVES ARE IN WORLD HISTORY OR WORLD GEOGRAPHY. FULL YEAR ELECTIVES FOR SENIORS ARE ADVANCED PLACEMENT AMERICAN HISTORY OR CURRENT AFFAIRS.
