The School in the Middle--What's So Special About It?
Howell, Bruce
This paper, in discussing the implementation of middle schools, makes six recommendations: (1) the program should reflect the needs of individual students; (2) the curriculum and schedules should accommodate an appropriate amount of independent study time paralleling the maturity of the individual; (3) the program should incorporate a non-graded schedule that, on a daily basis, would permit social and academic integration; (4) the curriculum should focus on teaching individuals how to learn; (5) the school climate should focus on the individual socially, psychologically, and academically; and (6) the special teacher training and certification needs necessary to cope with the emerging adolescent should be recognized.
