More time means more learning 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 c ass 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 back. 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." - Michelle Holman. 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 refunded 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." - by Michelle Holman. . Special Education and Math While students ask for help, Mr. Costello often makes jokes. john Zwalhen laughs but Billy Mitts doesn't see humor in the statement. Photo by lames Montoya. ACADEMICS 93

. 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 before graduation. 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- que Cervantes American history can be a hard subject to grasp. Mr. Constantine gives Amy Draper some extra help on the homework. Photo by Rick Patten. ACADEMICS 95
