Adapting Foreign Language Programs to New Educational Designs.
Levy, Stephen L.
John Dewey High School, the first experimental non-graded school in New York City, is described in this article in terms of its educational philosophy and administrative procedures. With modular scheduling, five area resource centers, and innovative student evaluation procedures integrated into the program, the school views the concept of individualized progress and independent study as the cornerstone of its educational theory. The function of the Dewey Independent Study Kit (DISK) concept is related to the curricular options permitted the student. With French, Hebrew, Italian, and Spanish offered at three levels in the language program, the author describes the function and administration of the foreign language resource center. (RL)
