[The Corbett Report on Non-Graded Language Arts, Functional Mathematics Option, and Introductory Physical Science.]
Blaser, John W.
In order to meet the needs of the students in a small rural school (Corbett High School in Oregon), 3 projects have been instituted which are geared to individual student interest, vocational choice, and ability. The first project, a non-graded language arts program, was developed by existing staff. Students in grades 9 through 12 are grouped by their abilities and interests to earn the 16 quarter credits needed for graduation. Information on problems such as record keeping and cost and equipment requirements is included in the document, as well as descriptions of the 26 courses offered. The second project, an optional vocational-related math course, allows for small group or individualized instruction with the use of free time as a physical reinforcer. The third project, a laboratory-oriented science program, allows the ninth-grader to use the discovery method in his physical science course. (LS)
