RATIONALE FOR EMERGENCE--A LOOK AT THE MIDDLE SCHOOL.
EICHHORN, DONALD H.
THE 10- TO 14-YEAR-OLD CHILD EXPERIENCES EXTENSIVE PHYSICAL, EMOTIONAL, AND COGNITIVE CHANGES. THIS TRANSITION CONSTITUTES A UNIQUE STAGE IN THE DEVELOPMENTAL PROCESS OF THE CHILD. THE AUTHOR SUGGESTS THAT THE EXISTING ORGANIZATIONAL STRUCTURE OF OUR EDUCATIONAL SYSTEM IS INADEQUATE FOR THESE YOUNGSTERS AND THAT IT IS NECESSARY TO ADOPT THE MIDDLE SCHOOL DESIGN TO MEET THE EMERGING NEEDS OF THE CHILD. THIS PAPER WAS PRESENTED AT THE CONFERENCE ON "THE MIDDLE SCHOOL--RATIONALE AND DEVELOPMENT," (UNIVERSITY OF PITTSBURGH, PENNSYLVANIA, DECEMBER 11, 1967). (DG)
