Noel, Kent L.
Outcomes of the Junior Secondary Education Improvement Project (JSEIP), implemented in Botswana during 1985-91, are presented in this final report. The project's purpose was to help the Botswana government expand its 7-year basic education program (primary) to 9 years (primary and junior secondary). The first and second sections provide the context for the report, and the third section offers an overview of the project's purposes and goals. Section 4 describes how the project applies to Botswana's educational goals. Ways in which the instructional systems design (ISD) approach has been adapted to the country's educational context are examined in section 5. The sixth section summarizes change strategies that were used in syllabus and material development in each junior secondary subject area. The seventh and eighth sections document the development of the Ministry of Education in terms of curriculum development, teacher education, and advisors' area activities and products. The program's major accomplishments are summarized in section 9. Section 10 offers recommendations for sustaining and building upon project outcomes, particularly with regard to a potential 1992 Basic Education Consolidation project. Some of the lessons learned from the experience are reviewed in section 11. One table, two figures, and lists of JSEIP personnel, trainees, reports, and publications are included. (LMI)
