A group got together for the first t.ne on

and while, eventually, a party may be
formed, them has been no decision on this.

What the group is doing, he said, is
analysingth existing political parties vith
a vev to finding out whether there is any
"credible group" vith vhich they could
align.-

"At the conclusion of that analysis, Mr

classroom management and included ses-
sions on managing stress, learning to relax,
pre-reading, reading readiness and devel-
opment of an infant curriculum.


There vere also sessions on integrating
language arts units into the curriculum and
demonstration lessons were taken to indicate
how language arts can be incorporated into
other courses in the curriculum.

The Caribbean practice of having two
teachers operate in one open classroom was
reviewed and there vere discussions as to
how best this can be accomplished.
