Education of Disadvantaged Groups and Multiple Class Teaching: Studies and Innovative Approaches. Report of a Study Group Meeting (Jakarta, November 17-26, 1980).
United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization, Bangkok (Thailand). Regional Office for Education in Asia and the Pacific.
Participants from India, Korea, Maldives, Nepal, Thailand, the Philippines, Sri Lanka, and Indonesia met to formulate strategies and develop alternative methods of teaching multiple classes and educating disadvantaged groups. Activities of the Study Group Meeting included four phases: presentation and discussion of country experiences relating to problems and learning difficulties encountered in teaching multiple classes and in educating disadvantaged groups, and the national efforts and initiatives employed in solving such problems; review and analysis of innovative methods of teaching multiple classes and educating disadvantaged groups; group work to develop strategies and alternative methods; and visits to schools which enabled participants to observe multiple class teaching. For a comparative analysis of innovative methods in teaching multiple classes and disadvantaged groups, the following aspects were considered: rationale for organization of multi-grade/multiple classes; forms and types of multiple classes and disadvantaged groups; innovative projects/programmes; policies and linkages in the implementation of such programmes and projects; and the relationship between multiple classes and the disadvantaged groups as perceived by participants. Participating countries discussed and analyzed 26 innovative projects being implemented in their countries and came up with more alternative and innovative projects to be tried. (CM)
