Course Outlines for Secondary School Offerings. Revised Edition.
Cherry Creek School District 5, Englewood, CO.
"Secondary School Offerings" provides a brief annotated outline of the general education courses offered in two middle units and one senior unit in the Cherry Creek Schools during 1971-72. The purpose of this summary is to supply a guide for new staff members, interested students, and parents. An overall instructional goal is to individualize instruction by whatever means possible. The schools are therefore given the latitude to develop teaching strategies and to organize the school day most appropriate to meet these ends. A major portion of the publication is devoted to course descriptions of the Campus Upper Unit for grades 9 through 12 which is organized on a modular schedule--each module being 25 minutes in length with a total of 16 modules in the school day. The West Middle Unit and the Campus Middle Unit for Grades 7, 8, and 9 are on a "floating period" schedule. Four large blocks of time make up the student's day allowing each student to operate on a different time schedule each week. Cherry Creek Middle Unit is structured on a non-graded basis. Unit descriptions are given on English, social studies, mathematics, science, foreign language, fine arts, practical art and vocations, physical education and special course offerings. Information for each subject is given on course structure, objectives, methods, requirements, credit, and bibliography. (Author/SJM)
