Interdependent Learning in an Open Classroom Setting: Dean Rusk Elementary School, 1972-73. Research and Development Report, Volume 7, Number 7, August 1973.
All special programs at Dean Rusk Elementary School, funded in part under Title I of the 1965 Elementary Secondary Education Act, combined to facilitate individualized instruction in the nongraded, open classroom setting of the school. To better meet the needs of the pupils during the 1972-73 school year, the Follow Through Program included, for the first time, the pupils in levels corresponding to grade three. As a result, the Follow Through Program operated in levels corresponding to grades Kindergarten through three. In addition, the Title I Program was restructured so that the most educationally deprived pupils were taken from the classroom for one hour of intensive reading instruction each day. The Career Opportunities Program paid all college costs for aides to attend accredited colleges or universities. Three aides at Dean Rusk Elementary School participated in COP. The Comprehensive Instructional Program was concerned with curriculum improvement and teacher inservice training. Follow Through made use of the Interdependent Learning Model, a games approach to learning. The project utilized a specialized method of teaching phonic skills and offered special instruction in music, art, speech, and inactive communication. The Title IV-A program consisted of a breakfast program and an extended day program for pupils six through 12 years old. (Author/JM)
