Two booklets: a Dewey Decimal System Booklet that details the categories in the Dewey system. And, a Jobs List Booklet that details the Jobs listed with the Department Of Labor. Also, the Jobs in this booklet are indexed to the Dewey Decimal System + Each job shows the Identity Traits needed to be successful in the job.
Access to a complete library of nonfiction material.
An Association of universities, businesses, Departments of Labor, and Departments of Education who identify the skills for ever Job. They then scope and sequence those skills into Courses Of Study in which the students can enroll to prepare themselves for that Job.
The Association also lists the Identity Traits for every Job (Aptitudes/ Talent, Interests, Personality, Temperament, Cognitive Ability).
The Association indexes all Jobs to the Dewey Decimal System and creates a Jobs List.
Counselors help students *to find their strongest Identity Traits, *to find their strongest Interests, *to find jobs that match their Interest and Identity Traits on the Department of Labor's Jobs list, *to find like minded students and people for them to meet and discuss their Interests.
The Department of Labor's Job List will tell students:
The Dewey Decimal System
from each nonfiction category
b. keep a record of what they read
c. prioritize the interest level of each book or material on a 1 - 10 scale.
Students can match reading material with a Job.
Students can select comfortable reading material.
Students can enjoy occupation related fiction as they plan their career.
The Revolution In Education begins when a student is 11 years old (5th Grade).
This is the age at which they develop self-awareness.
Some develop it sooner. Some develop it later.
Self awareness is necessary because it enables students to say, "I like this, but I don't like that".
With that ability, they can prioritize what they read on a 1 - 10 scale.
The Revolution In Education has no
grade schools, high schools, colleges, or universities. It only has Courses of Study.
Report Cards with letters or numbers or Pass or Fail marks. It only has Progress Reports that show mastery of each skill needed for a particular job. Students do not fail in this school. Long before they reach graduation day, students will know if that job is suited for them or not.
High School Diploma, Bachelor's Degree, or Doctor's Degree. It only has a Master's Degree that will be conferred upon the student when they complete the Course Of Study.
Because all skills in the course of study are scope and sequenced and very important to the job, students can not move to the next skill unless they've mastered each skill in the sequence.
The system works like this,
For 30 minutes each day, students systematically browse through the Expanded Dewey Decimal Booklet and the Jobs Booklet to find topics and Jobs, looking for topics that interest them and making a note of those that interest them. Systematically, means that they browse through all the topics.
When they find topics and Jobs that interest them, they begin systematically reading nonfiction books. Systematically, again, means that they read from all Categories in the library. Also, as they read, they must remember that Interest is an indicator of Aptitude. They are trying to discover What they are good at. Also, the students, obviously, will be reading more than one book at a time. However, one of the books must fulfill the requirement to be Systematic (a book from each Category of the Dewey Decimal System) and the others can be those that Interest them.
These books are indexed to the Dewey Decimal System and to Jobs that are also indexed to the Dewey Decimal System.
Also, all Jobs are have Identity Traits. Therefore, students will take Identity Tests to know their Personality, Temperament, Aptitude, Interests, and Cognitive Abilities.
Once students discover books that strongly interest them and they know their Identity Traits, they go to the Department of Labor website and look for Jobs that match their Dewey Decimal Number and their Identity Traits.
Students also make Book Reports that record the books Dewey Decimal Number. And, importantly, students keep a Category Tally Sheet that shows the number of times the student read a book in that Category. The Tally Sheet also keeps the students' 1 - 10 rating of that Category.
Using this information - the Interest Tally Sheet and Identity Traits - Counselors, Teachers, and Administrators can help the student find Jobs that will make them Happy, Successful, and Prosperous in life.
Most importantly, all decisions are made by the student. It's their life.
When they decide upon a Job, the student enrolls in a Course Of Study that prepares them for that Job.
The student receives a Progress Report Card that documents their progress in the Course Of Study.
When they have mastered the course of study, they graduate and receive a Masters Degree.
The school will now help them find that Job.
The student may wish to enroll in several Courses Of Study. The school will decide if this is possible.
Always follow your dreams because Interest = Aptitude
The Better Schools Foundation
We must set up a foundation to
create materials that will make the new system operational.
recruit personalities and institutions to persuade communities, students, teachers, counselors, administrators, and political leaders that the new school system will work and is good. A famous person because of their popularity, integrity, and zeal for good education could accomplish the task overnight.
Some of the materials we must create are
A list of Identity Traits for each Job.
A Department of Labor's Jobs List's Wall Chart that indexes jobs to the Dewey Decimal System.
Dewey Decimal System Wall Chart.
Research that will put reading level labels on every book.
Index fiction to the Dewey Decimal system
items from the Requirements and Additional Requirements list
a web site that gives information about the program
videos and web pages that explain and demonstrate the program.
billboards, newspaper, television, radio ads that advertise our web site
All jobs are indexed to the Dewey Decimal System and qualified by Identity Traits.
