Creative English Curriculum: June 1, 1970 to May 29, 1971.
Brown, James E.
Attempting to overcome the problems of traditional classroom approaches and the tendency of teachers untrained in new phases of English instruction to simply "do their own thing," the Shawnee Mission Northwest High School has designed a Creative English Curriculum for the 1970-71 school year. In the proposed program, teachers with different talents and backgrounds will form teams of four to seven members which will meet daily to plan and evaluate teaching strategies. Those teachers with specialties will give three or four short elective courses for students during the school year, as well as share their knowledge with colleagues. Students will have the opportunity to elect those courses which suit their interests and abilities, to engage in independent study or remedial work, and to join with faculty in pre- and post-program evaluation. (Diagrams for some of the proposed electives for grades 10-12 are included.) (Author/MF)
