Development and Implementation of a Non-Graded Organization in an Elementary School.
Troutman, Bruce E.
This practicum report deals with the development and implementation of a nongraded program of instruction in the primary levels of a public school. Progam activity, from the initial informational and planning phases, through development and implementation, and, finally, to postprogram assessment, is the subject and substance of the report. The program was carried on in response to a board of education mandate, and the activities were planned to overcome teacher resistance and indifference toward movement away from a traditional, graded organization. A high level of staff participation, with direct responsibility for sharing in program development, implementation, and assessment activity, was recognized as being of paramount importance if there were to be significant changes in teacher attitudes and program outcomes. To the degree possible, all stated objectives of the program were satisfactorily met. (Author/IRT)
