The Progress Club met on Jan. 5, at the Presbyterian Church with ten members present.
The program was given by Toni Rice, a former Great Bend teacher. She is now employed by “Direct Instruction” and is working in the Australian Outback. “Direct Instruction” is a program where every child is tested and works at their own level. It is especially used in areas where there is poverty or immigrants. Ms. Rice gave a power point presentation about the schools, challenges and geography of the region.
The next meeting will be held at 1:15 p.m. on Feb. 2, at the home of Sharon Mauler with Mary Ann Mull and Darlene Boley as co-hostesses.
