A Different Assignment

ByAlbert Corlett

This book is the professional autobiography of a dedicated teacher. Time spent in traditional teaching methods, with the class system controlled by the timetable, caused him great dissatisfaction since it clearly did not maintain the interest and motivation of the pupils. Too much effort and time was spent on controlling the class, little time for helping children who were dropping behind in the rigid system and scarcely any involvement which could stimulate learning by the pupils. Various experiences pointed to a different method of organising a school, in which the pupils controlled their own programme and the teachers taught, and also had time to work with pupils who needed extra guidance. The result was a school where social education and discipline were intrinsic to the school work and pupils left with the knowledge and ability to work and live in the adult community.
