Project ORDER is a pilot project tested in an urban middle school in Houston, Texas. The program was intended to improve the general school atmosphere; to improve students' attitudes toward the school, its program, faculty, and administration; to show significant improvement in pupil behavior; and to substantially improve teaching-learning experiences and cognitive achievement. Implementation of the program was marked by three distinctive but overlapping strategies--use of the cluster approach to functional control, the introduction of several methods for teaching affective education, and the addition of personnel, including team leaders, counselors, a supervisor for the crisis intervention center, and teacher aides. The objectives, activities, and evaluation methods for each of the program's subsystems--curriculum, student body, extracurricular activities, class schedule, administration, facilities, and faculty and staff--are presented. Appendixes present instructions for writing an auto-tutorial learning packet and supplemental information on the program. (Author/IRT)
