McKeesport Junior High School: School "C".
Stepanovich, Myles M.
This document discusses a reorganization plan by which one large 1,600 student junior high school is being divided into three "schools within a school". The reorganization is taking place with the hope that with three "little schools", each with its own faculty team, a greater focus can be placed on the individual. The document begins by discussing the program rationale, the advantages of the three subschools over one unified school and the organization of a typical subschool. The document then discusses the 7th, 8th, and 9th grade curriculums and the methodology that will be used in teaching. Among the methods discussed are team teaching, inductive learning, and the inquiry method. Also considered in the document are the roles of the teacher and the counselor, scheduling, organizations and activities, student involvement, community involvement, program orientation, student discipline; and evaluation of the program, curriculum, students, and faculty.
