A Non-Graded Phased Elective English Curriculum; O. L. Smith Junior High School Superior English Program.
Dearborn Public Schools, MI.
The philosophy and design of a nongraded, phase elective English curriculum as implemented at O. L. Smith Junior High School in Dearborn, Michigan, is presented. In addition, a listing of courses offered and an outline of the administrative and scheduling changes required are given as an aid to others who may wish to institute such a program. One elective course is fully described. The booklet concludes with a two-year evaluation of the program by the principal. Measures of student and parent attitudes and the Iowa Test of Basic Skills were the instruments used for evaluation. Attitudes of both students and parents were overwhelmingly favorable. Actual data from the Iowa Tests are not given but the staff at O. L. Smith was "quite satisfied with their students' efforts, and is especially pleased by their students' growth in vocabulary development, interests, and combined application." (TO)
