Specimen Junior High School Programs of Study. Bulletin, 1923, No. 21
Deffenbaugh, W.S.
Bureau of Education, Department of the Interior
"Kindly send me copies of junior high-school programs of study or tell me where I may obtain copies of such programs" is the content of numerous letters received by the Bureau of Education. In order that these requests may be granted, this leaflet, which contains 25 programs of study selected from those on file in this office, has been prepared. Four of the programs included are the work of State departments of public instruction and 21 of city school departments. The programs may be considered typical of those in use in both the smaller and larger cities in various sections of the country. A comparison of the 25 programs reveals the fact that while no two are exactly alike, certain principles are fairly well adhered to. One is that the first junior high-school year, or at least the first half of that year, should be a transition or an adjustment period and that for this reason the courses should be a continuation of the elementary courses but presented from a new viewpoint. Some schools, however, offer electives in the first junior high-school year. Of the 25 school systems represented, 15 offer electives in the first year, 22 in the second, and 25 in the third.
