Central Junior High School. Implementing Basic Skills: A Building Plan.
Wolfe, Michael P.
The characteristics of a proposed basic skills instructional program that would involve all staff in a junior high school are described in this report. Basic skills are defined as ideas needed throughout life. Planned for the 1982-83 school year, the program is aimed at creating an environment for effective school change. Activities in seven project areas are listed: (1) school climate; (2) school attendance; (3) rescheduling classes; (4) public relations program; (5) curriculum development and basic skills identification; (6) student self-esteem; and (7) teacher incentives. Appended are a time line that traces each suggested activity throughout the school year and lists of basic skill competencies in communication, reading, math/science, and coping. Teachers' considerations for implementing basic skills instruction are noted, and profiles of the school's staff and pupils are included. (FG)
