Middle School in the Making. Readings from "Educational Leadership".
Leeper, Robert R., Ed.
The 32 articles in this volume suggest many ideas to be considered in planning a middle school. The traditional junior high school organization and program have for some years caused much concern. This level of schooling has seemed to some to be too much influenced by the high school curriculum. Observations suggest that sixth graders are more compatible with seventh and eighth graders than with other elementary students and that ninth graders are more compatible with high school students. Contributions to this volume are presented in five sections that consider the rationale for the middle school, its definition, its pupils and teachers, its curriculum, and some examples of middle schools in action. The articles present guidelines for establishing goals and for planning and staffing middle schools. Photographs will reproduce poorly. (Author/DN)
