The Nongraded Approach to Curriculum for Administrators and Teachers of the Disadvantaged. Interim Report.
Dawson, Martha E.; Holston, Helen H.
Thirty educators, with potential to assume a leadership role within his school or district and for whom the study of the non-graded approach would be of value, were selected for the Institute. One hundred children were also selected for "Operation Step Up" - a summer program in the Hampton Institute Nongraded Laboratory School. The objectives of the program revolved around the nongraded school, and individualized instruction. Other objectives included planning for the transition from a graded to a nongraded program and organizing a nongraded school. The laboratory school provided the opportunity for the participants to teach and observe in a nongraded desegregated classroom. The training phase took place from June, 1966 through July, 1966. A follow up phase began September 1966 and ended April, 1967. (Authors/CB)
