Aloha, I have really been enjoying the recent threads, especially the
Middle School concepts/conversation. Our school is heading in that
direction, and Walt Grebing, Colorado, is here in Honolulu talking to us.
He is also the President of the Nat'l Assoc. of Middle Schools.
Here is a question for everyone. What other ways are there to organize an
administrative group besides the Principal/Supervisor concept? Does any
school have an alternative option/visonary approach to restructuring these
If the recently inquiring members of this group who received information
concerning Middle Schools and art/music/drama could share that with us, we
would really appreciate this. Send to jfinley After 28 years
of art-for-art's-sake, thematic/integrative approaches certainly do sound
different but interesting. Does the art teacher have any freedom at all,
for example,or is the art teacher always at the mercy of the core teachers
and their programs? Have any of the high schools in your area started the
team approach? We hear out here that's the latest trend. Mahalo for your
comments. Joyce
