REPORT OF THE FIRST WORKSHOP ON TEAM TEACHING FOR THE COMPREHENSIVE IMPROVEMENT FIRST YEAR PROGRAM.
BLEVINS, ROBERT; AND OTHERS
IMPROVEMENT OF THE TEACHING OF READING, WRITING, AND ARITHMETIC IN THE PRIMARY GRADES WAS SOUGHT. GOALS INCLUDED CREATING WARM, INVITING, AND ENJOYABLE EXPERIENCES, DEVELOPING DESIRABLE HABITS, SKILLS AND ATTITUDES, AND PROVIDING THE ENVIRONMENT AND LEARNING EXPERIENCES THAT WILL MEET THE INDIVIDUAL NEEDS OF CHILDREN FROM VARIED BACKGROUNDS. ALSO IMPORTANT WERE HELPING THE CHILD DEVELOP A SENSE OF INDEPENDENCE AND SELF-RELIANCE, AND HAVING THE TEACHERS RECOGNIZE AND USE MORE EFFECTIVELY THE TRADITIONAL AND NEWER TEACHING METHODS, MATERIALS, EQUIPMENT, AND COMMUNITY RESOURCES. THE POSSIBILITIES THAT TEAM TEACHING AND THE NONGRADED APPROACH OFFERED INCLUDED THE USE OF BOTH HETEROGENEOUS AND HOMOGENEOUS GROUPINGS, DAILY INSTRUCTION IN READING AND ARITHMETIC, TEACHER TEAMS, AND THE USE OF LARGE AND SMALL GROUPS. THE GOALS OF THE NONGRADED PRIMARY PROGRAM WERE TO PROVIDE A PROGRAM FOR GROUPING YOUNG CHILDREN WHICH WAS FLEXIBLE ENOUGH TO ALLOW EACH CHILD TO PROCEED IN HIS LEARNING AT A RATE EQUAL TO HIS PHYSICAL, MENTAL AND EMOTIONAL MATURITY, TO CHALLENGE THE ABLE OR GIFTED LEARNERS, TO ELIMINATE THE FEAR OF FAILURE IN YOUNG CHILDREN, AND TO LIMIT THE RANGE OF LEVELS OF WORK WHICH INDIVIDUAL TEACHERS HAD TO COPE WITH IN A CLASS OF APPROXIMATELY 30 CHILDREN.
