THE NONGRADED ELEMENTARY SCHOOL, NEW MEXICO WESTERN STATES SMALL SCHOOLS PROJECT.
THOMPSON, JOHN F.; THOMPSON, MRS. JOHN F.
THE NONGRADED SCHOOL IS DEFINED AS A SCHOOL WHICH PROVIDES FOR THE CONTINUOUS, UNBROKEN, UPWARD PROGRESSION OF ALL PUPILS, FROM THE SLOWEST TO THE MOST ABLE. THIS TYPE OF SCHOOL WAS ORGANIZED AT THE LARGO CANYON SCHOOL (APPROXIMATELY 50 STUDENTS IN GRADES 1-8) IN THE JEMEZ MOUNTAIN SCHOOL DISTRICT. THE OBJECTIVES OF THIS PROGRAM WERE--(1) TO ENSURE THAT EACH STUDENT MASTERS NECESSARY BASIC SKILLS AND ESSENTIAL SUBJECT MATTER, (2) TO DEVELOP INDIVIDUAL RESPONSIBILITY FOR INDEPENDENT STUDY AND PROGRESS, (3) TO ENCOURAGE SATISFACTION IN LEARNING, AND (4) TO ENCOURAGE EACH STUDENT TO DEVELOP HIS OWN PARTICULAR TALENTS TO THE MAXIMUM. ACHIEVEMENT AND MENTAL ABILITIES TESTS HAVE BEEN GIVEN TO ALL CHILDREN, WHICH SHOW SATISFACTORY PROGRESS. HOWEVER, THE GREATEST ACCOMPLISHMENT HAS BEEN IN THE CHANGED ATTITUDES TOWARD SCHOOL, AND IN DOING GOOD WORK. (ES)
