Analysis of the Middle School Educational Programs.
Moore, James; Stevens, William
The projected "continuous progress" plan to be featured by a Seattle southeast area Middle School is an integrated organization of professional educators, curriculum, instructional modes and media, facilities, and administrative management in a program which guides the cognitive and affective development of individual students throughout the program. The arrangement of students and programs through grades five to eight will focus most upon a combination of small groups and independent study. The student has a personal advisor and confidant in his teacher-counselor, who is directly responsible for his education. The program will be based on a twelve-month school year, within which the student may stop and start as he needs to. The planned enrollment in the Middle School will be 1,500 students in the age range nine through 14 years. In the Middle School there will be eight sections, each of which will be home base for 188-190 students in a nongraded organization. The advent of pre-prepared curriculum materials, and the freedom of the student to develop his own materials and to plan along with the teacher counselor, will yield materials for individualized learning.
