Summary

The program developed by the University of Maryland in cooperation with the Montgomery county school system is described. It is an attempt to put educational theory into operation. It focuses on an experimental-laboratory-for-people concept and emphasizes the individual's role in the learning process. It has put the process of self-education ahead of teaching-as-telling to the extent that the process of obtaining the answer is more important than the answer. The seventh grade program has an anthropological base of common cultural elements and utilizes the unit-seminar-contract-project approach to teaching. Units on tools and machines, power and energy, and communications and transportation focus on their development and their contributions to the growth of civilization. The eighth grade program has a contemporary approach to American industry and uses the group project method and line production technIQues. The ninth grade program takes into account the psychological needs of the student, his resourcefulness, capabilities, future aspirations, problem solving ability, and ingenuity. It assumes the ninth grade location in the 6-3-3 school plan as well as the developmental tasks associated with that age and grade level. The approaches which may be used are contemporary units, research and experimentation, group projects, line production, and technical development by group or individuals.
