CURRICULUM GUIDE FOR THE WORK-STUDY PROGRAM, GRADE NIND.
Kansas City School District, MO.
THE CURRICULUM BASE SHOULD RELATE TO THE REGULAR CURRICULUM AND TO THE PUPIL'S ABILITY, TO THE END THAT HE MAY NOT BE SET APART FROM HIS PEER GROUP IN THE JUNIOR OR SENIOR HIGH SCHOOL SETTING. SUCH A GUIDANCE-CENTERED APPROACH HAS SEVERAL GENERAL OBJECTIVES. IT SHOULD HELP THE BOYS ACHIEVE SELF-UNDERSTANDING THROUGH REALISTIC VALUES AND GOALS. BASIC SKILLS IN LANGUAGE, READING, AND WRITING ARE EMPHASIZED. STUDENTS SHOULD DEVELOP GOOD HABITS AND ATTITUDES. THE COURSES SHOULD ALLOW EACH BOY TO EXPLORE THE CULTURAL AND OCCUPATIONAL OPPORTUNITIES AVAILABLE TO HIM. THE EFFECTIVE TEACHER KNOWS HIS PUPILS VERY WELL. MANY ARE SENSITIVE ABOUT THEIR INABILITY TO READ AND ABOUT CRITICISM. SOME ARE LOUD WHILE OTHERS ARE UNUSUALLY QUIET. IT IS IMPORTANT FOR THE CURRICULUM TO APPEAR PRACTICAL IN NATURE. VERY LITTLE CAN BE EXPECTED IN WRITTEN WORK. READING SHOULD BEGIN AT THE PUPIL'S LEVEL. THE TEACHER SHOULD SEEK CONTINUOUSLY TO BUILD VOCABULARY. THE UNITS ARE DESIGNED TO HELP STUDENTS LEARN THROUGH THEIR EXPERIENCES. EACH UNIT IS OUTLINED ACCORDING TO CONTENT AND SUGGESTED LEARNING ACTIVITIES. UNITS HAVE TITLES SUCH AS "A REAL GUY UNDERSTANDS HIMSELF AND OTHERS,""A GUY NEVER GETS AHEAD IN REVERSE,""PUT IT IN WRITING," AND "BE YOUR OWN LIFE-BUILDER." A LIST OF TEACHER REFERENCES ACCOMPANIES THE TEXT.
