the top of the football field bleachers to the ground without breaking. Wade Logan stoops down to see if

More time means more
Special Education or Resourse
Specialist Program IR S PJ was for
students who had problems in keep
ing up in regular classes The books
and worksheets needed for the class
were all the same as an ordinary
Working at ones own pace was
the main difference for students en
rolled in R S P This was an advantage
because if one student excelled and
another needed more time the ad-
vanced student would not be held
A student didn t have to remain in
all R.S.P. for all subjects. If a student
excelled in math but didnt do well
in English then he would take R.S.P.
English and an ordinary math class.
Mrs. Pam Adkins added I enjoy
teaching Special Ed. because it gives
me chance to spend added time
with students helping them." -
Computers take charge.
Computers were used throughout
the math department to help visual
ize problems and to supplelment a
new system called Mastery Math
Mastery Math guaranteed that
students results on the California As
sessment Tests would increase 30 'Vo
or Charter Oak s money would be
The system contained a worksheet
on each chapter. After the work
sheet was finished a test was printed
on the computer and if the student
passed with an 800!0 or higher the
student moved to the next chapter.
The other way computers were
used in the math department was
with a big screen television so stu-
dents could visulaize the lesson bet-
ter. Mr.Ilm Costello stated Now
my students can t laugh at my crazy
handwriting or stare at the incom-
plete shapes I sometimes make." -

A new dimension of hi-tech
laser discs and computers
enters C.O.'s science classes.
Whether it was multi-science, bi-
ology, chemistry, or physics, every
Charter Oak student was bound to
be in at least one of these classes
As head of the scienceldepart-
ment, Mr. Bob Bolton said that the
goals of the science department
were to expose all students to con-
cepts in science which would help
them fit their own way of life.
A new dimension was added to
the department - the laser disc. It
was a system for storing visual and
auditory information. One disc cell
could store an entire page of infor-
mation and there were millions
of cells. Computer controlled, the
advantage of the system was that it
had instantaneous access to any pic-
ture or piece of sound. Lectures
could be set up ahead of time, and
pictures concerning science could
be brought onto the television
screen. - by Monique Cervantes
Science and Social Studies
The social studies department is
trying to prepare students for the
"real" political world
Social studies and history com-
prise the world of past and present.
Each minute that ticks by is a new
page in the story of the world.
The Charter Oak campus provides
students with a variety of social stud-
ies classes to choose from, such as
world geography, civics and family
living. Strangely enough, general
studies and driver's education are a
part of the department as well.
Mr. Glenn Carey, head of the de-
partment, said enthusiastically,
"We've received some unexpected
money that has enabled us to pur-
chase a new film and computer pro-
gram. We're also discussing Interna-
tional Baccalaureate, which is a
broader course of study higher than
advanced placement classes. The
course may be offered to juniors and
seniors next fall, and schools from all I
over will participate." Social studies
prepares students for the political
and economic world. -- by Moni-
