Druthers! A Collection of Viable Ideas from Rural Schools.
Elliott, Richard D., Comp.
An individualized junior high school, a youth resources program that interweaves high school with supervised work experiences, multi-aged elementary family groupings that mainstream EMR (educable mentally retarded) children, and a single library room transformed into seven optional learning stations using a multi-channel audio system are real programs that make a difference for students in rural schools. This booklet presents 65 innovative and promising educational practices that have been succeeding in classrooms in New York's rural schools. The booklet aims: to build greater awareness about programs that can work in rural schools; and to serve as a resource book, not only of ideas, but also of experienced people who are able to offer insights for turning ideas into working programs. Ideas cover such topics as: primary, middle school, and secondary organization; orientation for preschool children entering primary school; reading readiness; readiness skills; motor-perceptual training; open education; a nongraded approach; team teaching; reading; cooking; special education; physical education; English; social studies; science; independent study; music; media centers; outdoor education; art; career education; humanities; communication arts; drama; project arts; graduation from junior high school; volunteer programs; family group approach; and mainstreaming primary and intermediate children.
