Meeting the Needs of Transescents through Creative Scheduling Techniques.
Rogers, George M.
This report describes the flexible scheduling practices of Kennedy Middle School in Aiken, South Carolina and its Interdisciplinary Middle School Program for Advisement, Counseling, and Teaming (IMPACT). The school is organized into 2 sixth-grade, 2 seventh-grade, and 2 eighth-grade teams, each of which contains 6 teachers and 90 to 150 students. Teachers and team leaders can choose from among eight schedules. The IMPACT program, a twice weekly course for all students, is designed to help students develop their maximum potential by emphasizing self-esteem, peer relations, conflict resolution, decision-making skills, and study skills. The bulk of the report consists of schedule options, selection forms, and actual teacher schedules. Copies of the school's homework and discipline policies are also included. (MDM)
