Mini Schools: McMurray Junior High, Nashville, Tennessee.
Webb, Ronald
The mini school program is designed to provide a smooth transition from the elementary school to the independent discipline approach of high school. Under the program, a student spends two-thirds of each school day in a mini school where he is taught language arts, math, health science, and social studies. Each mini school has a teacher for each of the four subject areas. During the four class periods that students are in the mini school, teachers work with them in any way teachers choose. This report describes how the mini schools operate, tells how to schedule mini schools, and outlines some of the advantages of mini schools over more traditional methods of schooling. (JF)
