THE CHALLENGE ... A PROGRAM FOR GIFTED CHILDREN.
CARTER, C. DOUGLAS
THE NONGRADED PRIMARY SCHOOL ALLOWS EACH CHILD TO PROGRESS AT HIS OWN RATE. LEVELS OF ACHIEVEMENT ARE SET UP FOR LANGUAGE ARTS, SOCIAL STUDIES, AND SCIENCE. THE BASIC LANGUAGE SKILLS ARE DIVIDED INTO EIGHT LEVELS, BY THE TIME THE CHILD HAS COMPLETED THE EIGHTH LEVEL, HE HAS DEVELOPED MOST OF HIS NECESSARY READING SKILLS. A NINTH LEVEL IS INCLUDED FOR EXCEPTIONALLY TALENTED STUDENTS. THERE ARE BASAL READERS FOR THE DIFFERENT LEVELS. SCIENCE AND SOCIAL STUDIES HAVE NO DEFINITE LEVELS. SINCE NO TEXTS ARE USED, SCIENCE AND SOCIAL STUDIES ARE TAUGHT THROUGH STUDENT EXPERIENCE AND SUPPLEMENTARY READING. SOCIAL STUDIES AREAS INCLUDE THE SCHOOL, THE HOME AND THE COMMUNITY. SCIENCE AREAS MIGHT BE WEATHER, PLANTS, HOMES, FOOD, LIGHT, AND SENSORY OBSERVATIONS.
