Lehr, Judy; Teicher, Barry
Brief profiles of 51 exemplary innovative schools are presented in this document. Many of the schools belong to the Associated Network of Individually Guided Education (IGE) Middle, Junior, and Senior High Schools. A 1978 conference of IGE schools identified successful practices for individualizing schooling related to one or more of the following nine components: (1) shared decision-making through a systemwide committee and instructional improvement committee, (2) instruction and advisory units headed by a team of teachers, (3) individual instructional planning for each student, (4) compatible curricular materials, (5) monitoring and improving programs through systematic evaluation, (6) cooperative school community efforts and communication, (7) community learning and work experiences for teachers, (8) intellectual, technical, and material support provided by the systemwide program committee, instructional improvement committee, the state education agency, and teacher education institutions, and (9) research and development conducted by school personnel and cooperating individuals and agencies. The schools included in this document include 27 middle or junior high schools and 24 senior high schools. A concluding chapter lists selected references on secondary education, and an appendix contains the agenda of the second annual IGE Secondary Conference and a list of resource persons. (Author/JM)
