WHAT'S TO BE DONE WITH THE DROPOUT WHEN HE DROPS BACK IN.
BIRKMAIER, EMMA M.
TEAM TEACHING AND CLASSROOM GROUPING FLEXIBILITY ARE GIVEN EMPHASIS. GREATER FLEXIBILITY IS NEEDED IN THE ORGANIZATIONAL STRUCTURE OF THE SCHOOLS AS WELL. RATHER THAN BY GRADE, DIVISIONS SHOULD BE ORGANIZED ACCORDING TO PRIMARY, INTERMEDIARY, JUNIOR SECONDARY, AND SENIOR SECONDARY LEVELS. FLEXIBILITY WOULD REMOVE THE STIGMA OF A TRACK SYSTEM. WITHIN SUCH AN ORGANIZATION, SPIRAL LEARNING COULD BE CONSIDERED AS PART OF THE CURRICULUM. THE CURRICULUM SHOULD ENCOURAGE PROBLEM-SOLVING ACTIVITIES. IT SHOULD BE RELATED CLOSELY TO THE WORLD OF WORK AND THE WORLD OF LEISURE. YOUNG PEOPLE NEED TO STUDY THE MANY WAYS PEOPLE EARN A LIVING. EXTRACURRICULAR ACTIVITIES MAY SERVE AS MOTIVATIONAL DEVICES TO KEEP STUDENTS IN SCHOOL. CRASH PROGRAMS ALREADY IN OPERATION ACROSS THE COUNTRY SHOULD BE INCORPORATED INTO THE CURRICULUM. THESE INCLUDE--WORK-STUDY PROGRAMS, SUMMER WORK CAMPS, JOB CORPS, AND WORK-TRAINING PROGRAMS. THIS ARTICLE IS PUBLISHED IN THE "NORTH CENTRAL ASSOCIATION QUARTERLY" VOLUME 38, NUMBER 4, SPRING 1964.
