Programed instruction for superior students in small high schools by John D McLain( Book )

2 editions published in 1967 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Superior students in rural high schools were given programed instruction in selected subject areas to determine if a nondirective method of diffusing an innovation, like programed instruction, was appropriate for dissemination in a rural environment. The effects of the cooperative demonstration project on students, parents, teachers, and high school administrators were measured by the attitude toward programed instruction inventory and the semantic differential scale. Results showed that predisposition of the individual to either adoption or rejection will affect the rate and final decision regarding the acceptance or rejection of the innovation. The investigator recommended that premeasures should be employed to determine the predisposition of the target population and concluded that the nondirective method of diffusing an innovation was appropriate for the dissemination of programed instruction in a rural environment. The use of newsletters proved to be an important contribution to the success of the project, and where dissemination is an objective, the investigator recommended the use of similar means of communication with the target audience.

The Operation of the Flexible All-Year School Plan. a Simulation Notebook by John D McLain( Book )

1 edition published in 1974 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The flexible all-year school plan provides for the school to operate all year, on a continuous basis, during regular school hours and school days except holidays. Under such a plan, a student need not attend school all year, or any longer than the amount of time required by law, but he may if he so desires. When a student enrolls in school, he is expected to remain in attendance during regular school days except at those times he is scheduled to be on vacation. Each student's study-vacation plan is scheduled on a personal basis. Such a flexible time schedule essentially mandates that the instructional program also be individualized. The flexible all-year school plan combines the features of year-round education and individualized instruction. This document focuses on the research-demonstration model of the flexible all-year school which became operational last fall at the research-learning center of Clarion State College in Pennsylvania.
