This manual provides specific and practical suggestions for the development of heterogeneous classes and individualized instruction in the More Effective Schools Program. The following major topics are covered in a number of short sections: 1) school organization, from prekindergarten through grade six; 2) the roles of the principal, assistant principal, administrative assistant, secretarial staff, classroom teacher, cluster teacher, educational assistant, teacher aide, and other teaching positions, and the changing roles of the teacher and supervisor; 3) the organization of heterogeneous classes, including the physical arrangement of the classroom and detailed suggestions for the use of time and materials; 4) ways to understand children and to start them on an individualized program; 5) evaluation of pupil progress; and 6) methods of maintaining discipline in the classroom and encouraging communication with parents and the community. A final section lists ten basic tenets for the heterogeneous classroom, and an appendix includes parents' views on the More Effective Schools program, the special functions of parents' associations, ways of assessing the classroom program, and a brief bibliography.
