6A THE SUPERIOR EXPRESS Thursday, October II, 1973 '- e News and Views Elementary School By Charles Densou Four teachers and the elementary principal from Superior attended an educational workshop at Educational Service Unit 9 on Oct. 8. The featured speaker and demonstrator at the workshop was Charlotte Baker, an outstanding elementary school educator from Illinois. Her presentation centered around a topic which is the concern of parents and educators throughout the United States: "How to Teach All Children." Demonstrating teaching techniques with children she bad never seen before, Mrs. Baker very carefully felt through several instructional methods until she found that method which fitted each child's level of achievement. In plain words, she felt educators must adjust the task to the child so that the child can achieve mastery and success with the task. Many schools, she in- dicated, give "lip-service" to this type of teaching, but in reality were still expecting the same things of all pupils whether they can really per- form the tasks or not. In such cases, the child's whole school experience is a confused and cloudy endeavor that simply snowballs with each succeeding year. According to Mrs. Baker and most educators who are truly concerned for children, and their educational well- being, children must achieve mastery of skills before moving on, if instruction is to be of value. Quality and enlightened personnel, varied materials, and individual and small group instruction, she indicated, are key factors necessary in educating all children. In her opinion, children should always be included in a group and should never be completely isolated. In ad- dition, she proposed a clear explanation to beth children and parents that everyone has something which they do better than most others, and some things which they do not do as well. With this in mind, then, different children must be taught differently because they are different from each other in terms of needs and ability to perform. Mrs. Baker's comments appear to echo the concerns of all of us, including the authors of LB 403, and we in Superior feel that we have responded and must continue to do so if we are to truly teach our youth for future life. We believe also that this cannot be done by adding one failure to another. There are enough failures in life in store for children without the school adding to them. We will make every attempt to carefully gear the skills and tasks of school to the individual child and demand mastery of these before allowing children to move to more difficult, and in some cases impossible, tasks. At least we hope to allow each child the opportunities to succeed at whatever level of achievement he can. @ Benjamin B.

The unit may be used to supply power to Superior during peak periods or if power is not available from the normal sources.
