A Student Report on Student and Teacher Reactions to Modular Scheduling and Independent Study at South Hills High School during the 1966-67 School Year.
Filene, Ron; Kief, Gary
This report, prepared by two students, deals with student and teacher reactions to a recently instituted program of flexible scheduling and independent study time at South Hills High School, Covina, California. Questionnaires were distributed to teachers and students during the first and second years of the program. Interpretation of the first-year results was made while the authors were students at South Hills High School. This document reports the second-year results and gives analysis of the entire program after the authors had gained the perspective of a year at college. Emphasis of interpretation is on the relevance of the program in preparing students for higher education, relevance of the program in inducing student maturity, and success of the program in making school more interesting and enjoyable to the students. It is concluded that the program was generally successful, and its continuation with some modification of funding and teacher behavior is recommended. (TT)
