THE CHALLENGE--A PROGRAM FOR THE NON-GRADED PRIMARY SCHOOL.
CARTER, C. DOUGLAS
SINCE IT IS BELIEVED THAT A CHILD PROGRESSES BY HIS OWN PARTICULAR MENTAL CAPACITIES, NINE LEVELS OF A NONGRADED PRIMARY UNIT HAVE BEEN DEVELOPED. ACCORDING TO A CHILD'S ABILITY, HE MAY COMPLETE HIS CONTINUOUS GROWING PATTERN IN 2 TO 4 YEARS. THE FIRST LEVEL IS PRIMARILY CONCERNED WITH DETERMINING A CHILD'S READINESS TO BE PLACED INTO A MORE ADVANCED LEVEL, ONE BEST SUITED TO HIS NEEDS. THE LEVELS ARE THEN DIVIDED BY RELATIVE SKILLS ACHIEVED IN LANGUAGE ARTS, SINCE READING IS THE SKILL WHICH MAKES OTHER LEARNING EASIER. AMONG THE AREAS OF SCIENCE AND SOCIAL STUDIES, NO ADOPTED TEXTS ARE OFFERED, THUS MAKING LEARNING THE RESULT OF EXPERIENCES AND OF OBSERVATIONS. LISTS OF SUPPLEMENTARY TEXTS ARE GIVEN ACCORDING TO LEVEL ACHIEVED. PROBLEM AREAS IN EVERY SUBJECT ARE OUTLINED. EVALUATION FORMS, SPECIALLY DESIGNED FOR THE PROGRAM, ARE INCLUDED.
