Implementing Nongradedness: Administrative Plans and Curriculum Designs.
Kuzsman, Francis, Ed.; MacIsaac, Teresa, Ed.
This book was prepared for elementary and secondary school teachers and administrators to help them in implementing nongradedness. It provides specific models, guidelines, suggestions, and references which could be of practical assistance. The first chapter deals with the problems which teachers face in preparing to implement continuous progress and describes a strategy for preparation. This is followed by five chapters prepared by elementary teachers and administrators outlining the details of how they went about implementation, with three chapters describing the process of transforming an elementary school from a graded to a nongraded basis, one describing the personal experiences of a teacher, and one giving details of a pilot project on nongrading the language arts program. The chapters relating to secondary education describe strategies or attempts to develop curricula in the basic disciplines. The objectives, basic skills, and suggested teaching techniques and learning activities for a sequential English program are presented. Course outlines for a nongraded mathematics program and a broad overview of a nongraded science program are included. In social studies a strategy is developed for transforming the curriculum outline for the province of Nova Scotia. The book also includes an extensive bibliography on nongrading, team teaching, and individualized instruction. (MBM)
