Coordination of Organic Curriculum Development in the Public Schools of Monroe, Michigan. Interim Report.
Hetrick, William M.; Kehoe, Ray E.
A series of single day visits to selected elementary and secondary schools in Illinois, Nevada, California, Florida, and Massachusetts was made by a visitation team of teachers, administrators and architects from the Monroe (Michigan) School District. This document reports the visitation team's impressions of developing educational systems, educational technology, materials resource centers, vocational education, and organizational patterns and staff utilization in the experimental programs. Also included are discussions of the faults of the traditional school, the change process in experimental schools, and new directions for change. The impressions were generally favorable and the visitors agreed that the educators they met were characterized by enthusiasm, vitality, and dedication. Pride in schools, staffs, and student bodies was evident among them. At times, the practices observed appeared to be somewhat at variance with theoretical formulations presented orally by school leaders or in written school publications. (MM)
