This guide was developed to acquaint teachers with the Continuous Progress Program, which is designed to recognize the individual differences of children in a nongraded curricular system and to make available to teachers a set of guidelines for implementation. The guide establishes the parameters within which the operation of an individualized process of instruction is to take place and presents seven principles on which the program is based. The contents of the document include: "The National Sequence of Change in the Elementary School Organization,""A Comparison of Graded and Nongraded Structures,""Teacher Involvement in the Avon Nongraded Program,""Questions and Answers on Avon's Nongraded Program," and a listing of specific levels within the program, including suggestions, activities, and skills.
