Begins in Frosh for Use at Student Mass Algebrtt classes There are many Kuemper students who work hard to improve various aspects of their school. One such group is the banner committee, headed by Joan Schulte. Committee members are Nancy Anthofer, Gail Friedman, Jane Mosher, Debbie Schenkelberg, Carol Sibenal- ler, and Mary Testroet. The committee is a part of the Liturgy Team, which is supervised by Fr. Seuntjens. These students meet several times a week to make the banners which are used during Mass. Joan Schulte said, "I think that the banners make Mass more meaningful to the students, and also brighten up the chapeltorium." She explained that there is some discussion as to which slogans and symbols are appropriate before the actual construction begins. The committee finds out what the intention of the Mass is, and tries to relate the message of tlie banner to it. Although they use a pamphlet for ideas, the designs and slogans are original. Materials for the banners, such as felt and burlap, are furnished by Fr. Seuntjens. Some of the slogans are derived from popular songs. One of these is near the library, and reads "We've only just begun." Near the door of the Kuemper chapel is a banner with the words "Open and you shall find." These banners are for the benefit of the students and faculty. —Charger Photo MEMBERS OF the banner committee are busy sharing and building new ideas in preparation for Fri- riav Masses. . The Kuemper freshmen will start something new — individual study in Algebra. There will be a group consisting of 32 students participating in this program under the supervision of Sr. Barbara Ann Hausman, Sr. Bette Shakal, and Sr. Francis Xavier. "The purpose of this program," Sr. Barbara Ann explained, "is twofold. First, to assume the basic responsibility for learning. Second, to adapt learning to the individual's abilities and rate of learning so that more of his potential will be used." The method that will be used includes: 1. one formal class a week will be conducted — a lecture class, 2. a contract will be made with the student for the amount of work to be done and checked, 3. the student will write a pre-tesl before taking the test of the unit in order to evaluate the sudent's readiness in mastering the subject matter. AH the students will report to their regular classroom, but lab work will be going on constantly. When the student completes the work and the test for the unit, he will be excused from the class until a new contract is made with the student. This first group will be tested against a control group to prove its usefulness and help to the students and teachers. If the program proves worthwhile, it will be continued in the future.
