South High Modular Program Evaluation: 1971-72.
Johnson, Lary; Gondek, Joseph
Student and staff reactions to the South High modular program at the end of its fifth year of operation are presented. Questionnaires were completed by about 60% of the students and 90% of the staff in May 1972. Although the student and staff response to a modular schedule was favorable, several areas in the South modular program were mentioned as needing improvement. Ninety-three percent of the students said they liked the modular schedule at South, while 70% of the staff said they preferred to teach in the modular program. Sixty-five percent of the teachers favored continuation of the program with certain changes; 17% said it should be continued as is; 17% favored discontinuation. The teachers felt the modular schedule had a positive impact on student attitudes but that improvement was needed in some cognitive areas. About half of the staff members considered the resource centers, the small group areas, and the commons areas as physically inadequate. Small group instruction and independent study were viewed by both students and staff as more valuable than large group instruction. Recommendations for improvement were made. (Author/CK)
