A Directory of Goal Based Approaches to Education.
Blum, Robert E.; Butler, Jocelyn A.
This directory provides brief, current information about 50 goal-based education programs of many types, sizes, and scopes throughout the United States. These programs make use of such concepts as minimum competency testing, mastery learning techniques, and continuous progress curricula, among many others. The directory is organized into five sections according to the grade level of students served: elementary programs, middle or junior high programs, high school programs, programs serving students at all elementary and secondary levels, and adult education programs. Each program is given a one-page entry describing the program, its setting, and some of its notable aspects. Contact persons who can provide further information or assistance are listed, along with the types of information or assistance they can make available. Seven indexes aid directory users by listing the programs numerically, alphabetically, by state of location, by the scope of the area they serve (for example, "statewide level" or "school building level"), by the size of the population served, by curricular subject areas involved, and by types of program highlights. An eighth index lists contact persons alphabetically. (PGD)
