Why Small Catholic Schools Succeed.
Kealey, Robert J., Ed.
This book grew out of presentations at the 1997 National Catholic Educational Association convention. "Twelve Reasons Why Small Catholic Schools Are Successful" (Donald F. Novotney) and "Advantages of a Small Catholic School" (Wayne A. Pelzel) focus on the advantages and climate of small schools. "Staffing and Scheduling in a Small Catholic School" (Wayne A. Pelzel) emphasizes faculty and staff involvement in planning, and examines the advantages and disadvantages of three basic organizational models: the multiage classroom, the departmental model, and the combination model. "Teaching in a Catholic Multiage Classroom" (Kay Rasmussen Jay) describes the advantages of multiage classes and offers advice on planning, adapting curriculum, and assessment. "Development in the Small Catholic School" (Mary Anderson), "The Development Committee as Ambassador for the Small Catholic School" (Sister Ann Ganley), and "The Need for a Comprehensive Development Program in a Small Catholic School" (Judy Howard) examine the need for, and present examples of, creative approaches to financial development efforts. "Information Technology: A Small Catholic School's Journey" (Kathy A. Garlitz) discusses how one school's recognition that the information revolution is creating a new mode of learning, led it to pursue funding for computers, software, and teacher training. (TD)
