The Maple Grove Story.
Thompson, Edra; And Others
This monograph documents some aspects of school life at an Ontario school for kindergarten and first grade students. The report emphasizes some of the special features of the school, such as the use of parent volunteers; a highly individualized program based in a large measure on students' goals, interests, and readiness; a comprehensive evaluation of the kindergarten program; a parents' manual for home instruction that forged a new type of school-home cooperation; and a "mini-school" for preschoolers operated by parents as a pilot project in early childhood education. In addition, the school has for three years been the location of studies in inquiry, problemsolving, and other curriculum innovations; and, for a year, was one of the schools in which a model for parental assistance was implemented.
