Abstract

The purpose of this study was to: (1) determine what patterns of selection occurred when children chose their curricular areas at times they preferred within the school day; (2) determine what proportion of time children with academic deficiencies (identified by their pre-summer session teachers) spent in the curricular area of their deficiency; (3) present the attitudes (as revealed through a questionnaire study} of parents whose children attended a summer school using a self-determining curriculum, and (4) present the attitudes and preferences (as revealed through personal interviews) of children who attended a summer school using a self-determining curriculum.
