Middle School Overview.
Fraser, David; And Others
This report, the second of two relating to the activities of the Southeast Education Center, describes the middle school facilities of the Center. The Center was organized on the "Continuous Progress Concept"--that in which a student will move at his own pace in an individualized program. The entire Southeast Education Center proposes to develop a school system in which professional educators, involved citizens, and community agencies jointly venture to educate and train students in the knowledges, skills, and concepts needed to solve problems in their social, psychological, and biological-physical environments. The problem of utilizing the findings of behavioral science in various curriculum domains and subject matters will be dealt with. The program will be implemented in a well-designed way to study the effects of individualized instruction on student: teacher-counselor ratio, teacher-counselor roles and functions, curriculum writing and organization, student grouping, special education and accelerated learner needs, building and facilities planning, and other aspects of school system design and development.
