Renne Intermediate School Features Personalized Instruction.
Profiles, Programs & Products, n32 Oct 1983
Renne (Oregon) Intermediate School offers an innovative program of personalized instruction to students in grades 6-8. Teachers work closely with individual students, following a continuous progress curriculum which allows cross-grade-level placement in the core areas of math, reading, and language arts. Based on cooperative district planning, the student body and instructional staff are organized into three inner schools called "Ranges," each consisting of students from all three grade levels and teachers from various subject area departments. In addition to the core curriculum, special mid-day activities (recreation, activities, and meals) supplement the curriculum. Teachers play an active role in the planning and development of school programs, teaching, leadership responsibilities, and professional training in assertive discipline. In summary, students in this personalized instruction program are afforded increased opportunities for success through the continuous progress curriculum, the integration of grade levels through Ranges, and the assertive discipline program.
