Ada Evening News (Newspaper) - August 20, 1967, Ada, Oklahoma Page i the Ada evening news Ada Oklahoma sunday August 20,1967 change sweeps schools what about curriculum continued from pig ont although the main Pui pose is to give All students an of port Unity to study speech in a an age increasingly dependent on All types of communication there also Are plans for More specialized interests As a debate program. Lucretia Chapman who is studying for a masters degree in drama from the University of Oklahoma will teach the senior High speech classes and will help music instructor Betty Barton direct the school s television program. Speech classes at the Junior High will be taught by Bill Brackett former instructor at Seminole. Skelton says the next step in this area will be to set up a a Fine arts rotation Quot at the Junior High level with students it taking alternating 12-week courses in Art music and speech. It is at the Junior High level that Skelton sees a definite need for sweeping changes in the curriculum. He believes the Junior High years should be a a period of exploration a and that the course offerings from the seventh through the ninth grades should be widely expanded. A before the child reaches Junior High the areas he studies have All been dictated to him throughout element Ary school a Skelton explains a and when he gets to senior High the courses Are More or less again dictated because of the necessity to take required courses for graduation particularly in College preparatory for this reason Skelton believes that the Junior High program should be widely expanded to give the individual student a at least a taste of a variety of subjects As Well As the Basic curriculum now offered. Another immediate step in this direction is to expand the science program to include classes at the eighth Grade level. As a matter of fact under Skelton s direction a committee has been set up to study an elementary science program patterned on the science curriculum improvement study conducted by the University of California at Berkeley. Skelton said the school system is applying for a Federal Minnie treat Konawa a mrs. Minnie treat resident of Konawa for 65 years died at 6 30 . Friday in a Shawnee Hospital.

It was held on the Campus of Southwest Missouri state College and was the Lith National meeting of the group. Enis was involved chiefly with the workshop division in secondary traffic safety. The conference which Drew 500 delegates from All Over the nation is sponsored by the National education association. Wast of Ada a Toby.

Grant to finance in session training for All elementary teachers of the a discovery method Quot of teaching science. The Grant will be applied for through East Central state College and implemented through the Public school system. The school superintendent explained that the a discovery method Quot Aims at developing a problem solving approach to scientific study rather than learning by Rote or memorization of an accumulation of facts. A the time is past a says Skelton a when it is possible to rely on feeding students a series of facts a there simply Are too Many a facts to be covered the other area of immediate change in the High school curriculum involves the addition of the Industrial cooperative training program As a result of recommendations of the state department of education and evaluation of the program by the superintendents office. The program which adds on the Job training to classroom instruction Aims at better preparing High school students who plan to go on to vocational Fields rather than to colleges or universities after leaving High school. Interest in the program has been so great that Skelton comments that not All who wish to take the Industrial education courses will be Able to immediately. Although the school system will not neglect vocational education the emphasis will remain on College and University preparatory courses Skelton says a because of the kind of town this is and because of the High percentage of High school graduates who go on to College. Generally Ada highs curriculum reflects the interests and needs of a town with a High percentage of professional people among its residents. The High school ranks far far above the minimum requirements set by the state department of education offering a total of 67vt units of instruction As compared to minimum requirements of approximately 20 units. Incidentally though Ada High does not meet nor intend to meet an increasingly outmoded area of study demanded by the states Constitution it does not include a course in agriculture or horticulture. One area of particular strength is the teaching of foreign languages Ada is the Only school in the state that offers a full course of russian for example. In addition courses Are offered in Spanish course the third year of latin. However changing patterns of student interest and needs probably will mean one lop Ping off of a present language course the third year of latin. Skelton says the course attracts fewer and fewer students each year indicating that it should be trimmed to a two year course As Are the other languages except French. Considering the question of foreign language instruction at the Grade school level Skelton believes it will come eventually but not immediately. Skelton says if foreign languages Are taught in the Grade schools it will Only be on the basis of being Able to have an actual classroom instructor adding that he is a very dissatisfied with the to approach As used by the Oklahoma City Skelton believes that the to approach is too impersonal to be beneficial to the students and says that if foreign language study is expanded downward in the Ada school system it will be added at the fifth or sixth Grade on a a conversational generally Grade school curricula Are More a matter of areas of Basic study rather than particular course offer than particular course offerings Skelton says and believes that Here too. The Ada system rates Well above average. Strengthening of the school system on the elementary level has come about in recent years through the use of More comprehensive testing systems and the addition of programs As remedial Reading which will be operating from the beginning of the school year this fall. On the elementary level Skelton s philosophy reflects the same attitudes As his thinking on the entire Modem school system a process of continual exploration of new methods and techniques to meet increasingly Complex social needs without focusing on the merely a faddish a in school i a a a a irn amp i a of i Quot / a.
