The Klein Concept for Team Teaching and Continuous Progress Education.
Mountain View School District, CA.
The Klein School and the concept of education that it represents is presented. The concept grew out of the desire that the teaching-learning environment (curriculum, people, and buildings) should meet the needs of individual children. In providing for the individual differences of both teachers and students at Klein, the rigidity of time scheduling and space confinements have been removed. The curriculum is not designed to conform to walls and bells. Continuous progress education, team teaching, large and small group instruction, independent study, and flexible scheduling are all evidence of the Klein school's break from the educational lockstep. Sections on the following are included and elaborated on--(1) flexibility, (2) team teaching, (3) continuous progress, (4) architectural, (5) definitions, and (6) personnel. (RK)
