The Emergent middle school by William M Alexander( Book )

13 editions published between 1968 and 1975 in English and Dutch and held by 648 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The adjective "emergent" is applied to a recent school trend which originated in dissatisfaction with what the junior high school has become, not with its original concept of function. The emergent middle school is "a school program planned for a range of older children, preadolescents, and early adolescents that builds upon the elementary school program for earlier childhood and in turn is built upon by the high school's program for adolescence" (p, 5) encompassing grades 5-8 or 6-8. These years are a "crucial" time for establishing basic attitudes toward learning, best served with an articulated bridging curriculum which would introduce intellectual challenge and a wide range of facilities. There must be much provision for individualization, for at no other level of schooling is there such a wide range of social, physical, and intellectual development. The creation of a new school level with a different name will facilitate innovation and attract a capable staff

The high school : today and tomorrow by William M Alexander( Book )

4 editions published in 1971 in English and held by 312 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

At present, this is the most comprehensive and most thoroughly up-to-date of the many textbooks recently published for use in basic courses often called "Principles of Secondary Education." As stated in the preface, a major objective of the volume is "to enable students of the high school to understand its role in American life, its program, the tasks and opportunities of its personnel, and its possible future directions." the book should by no means be reserved exclusively for college students. Teachers and administrators with experience in secondary school work will find the book a convenient way to catch up with recent developments at this level of American education, including significant changes in enrollments, objectives, content, and methodology in English, the foreign languages, the social studies, music, art, physical education, industrial education, and science and mathematics. If the reader is not certain as to what is implied by such terms as systems planning, synergetic-type teaching, storefront academies, educational parks, educational complexes, computer-assisted instruction, taxonomies of instructional objectives, self-directed freeform education, or schools for transcendence, etc., this volume will help bring them abreast of the times
