DEPARTMENTALIZATION IN ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS.
American Association of School Administrators, Washington, DC.
THE RESULTS OF A SURVEY CONCERNED WITH DEPARTMENTALIZATION IN ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS ARE REPORTED IN STATISTICAL TABLES WHICH ARE ACCOMPANIED BY DESCRIPTIVE COMMENTARY. FOR THE PURPOSE OF THE SURVEY, THE DEFINITION OF DEPARTMENTALIZATION IS RESTRICTED TO INCLUDE ONLY THOSE SITUATIONS IN WHICH STUDENTS RECEIVE INSTRUCTION IN THE VARIOUS ACADEMIC SUBJECTS FROM MORE THAN 1 TEACHER. OF THE 400 SCHOOL SYSTEMS RESPONDING TO AN INITIAL INQUIRY, 97 WERE FOUND TO BE PRACTICING DEPARTMENTALIZATION. INFORMATION ELICITED BY MEANS OF A QUESTIONNAIRE IS REPORTED CONCERNING THE EXTENT OF DEPARTMENTALIZATION (ACCORDING TO GRADE LEVELS) WITHIN EACH OF THE 97 SCHOOL SYSTEMS. VARIOUS ORGANIZATIONAL PATTERNS OF THE DEPARTMENTALIZED PROGRAMS ARE ENUMERATED AND THE FREQUENCY WITH WHICH THEY ARE EMPLOYED IS REPORTED. INFORMATION IS GIVEN CONCERNING THE FLEXIBILITY OF THE PROGRAMS IN ALLOWING STUDENTS TO MOVE BETWEEN GRADE LEVELS AND FROM ABILITY GROUP TO ABILITY GROUP WITHIN GRADE LEVELS. MISCELLANEOUS EVALUATIVE COMMENTS OF MANY OF THE REPORTING SCHOOL SYSTEMS ARE PRESENTED. THE SURVEY QUESTIONNAIRE IS REPRODUCED AND A SELECTED BIBLIOGRAPHY IS APPENDED. THIS CIRCULAR IS AVAILABLE FROM EDUCATIONAL RESEARCH SERVICE, NATIONAL EDUCATION ASSOCIATION, 1201 SIXTEENTH, N.W., WASHINGTON, D.C. 20036, FOR $1.00. (JS)
