Extraclass Activities for All Pupils. Bulletin, 1950, No. 4
Tompkins, Ellsworth
Office of Education, Federal Security Agency
Extraclass activities as used in this publication mean pupil activities under school sponsorship outside of regularly scheduled classes, for which no graduation credit is usually given, and for which no course of study ordinarily exists. This publication discusses the responsibility of secondary school administrative and teaching personnel for the organization, programing, and evaluation of extraclass activities and offers some suggestions for discharging that responsibility. In history of extraclass activities, particularly within the past 20 years, some common trends have appeared. It is the purpose of this publication to explore a selected number of these trends by commenting on: (1) The direction in which extraclass activities have expanded; (2) The idea of encouraging wide participation by all pupils; (3) The provision for total faculty attention to the school's responsibility for programing such activities; (4) The tendency toward making extraclass activities curricular; (5) The increasing use of the activity period within the school day; (6) The evaluation of extraclass activities by individual high schools; and (7) The elements of a balanced program of extraclass activities in the high school. (Contains 6 tables.) Individual sections contain footnotes. [Best copy available has been provided.]
