A Case Study of IGE Implementation at the John Ridgeway Public School, Columbia, Missouri.
Ciaglia, Edmund R.; And Others
This historical case study of the Ridgeway Elementary School from initial community contact through the completion of the first year of Individually Guided Education (IGE) assesses the attitudes of the parents; evaluates the cost factors associated with implementing the program; assesses the effects of IGE implementation on the local community; assesses the possibilities of using IGE materials in preservice, undergraduate, and graduate education courses; and evaluates the IGE materials as utilized by elementary teachers during their ongoing in-service program. This study is divided into seven sections. Section one provides (a) an introduction to and historical background of IGE implementation, (b) a chronology of major events leading to IGE implementation, and (c) a profile of the school. In section two the IGE facilitator views everyday school life from August to May. Section three discusses identifying, selecting, and preparing resources for IGE implementation. Section four deals with the influence of IGE on teachers' attitudes and behaviors. Section five reviews the initial effect of IGE upon the student, and section six discusses parent and community reaction. Section seven provides a summary of the purposes of the study. Tables and 10 appendixes are included. (PD)
