The study on, "Revising the Curriculum of Dunbar Elementary School of Sulphur, Oklahoma to Meet the Needs of Pupils and Community," is a form of research to be executed in search of improved techniques and methods that may be used by Dunbar School and other smaller rural schools.

It is the opinion of the experimenter that with the use of integration and correlation in teaching elementary school subjects, children will make better progress. Such a procedure will offer opportunities for organized groups, based on units of study; more time must be given to class periods, assignments, and individual instruction.

This study is being made also to obtain information that will assist pupils in acquiring essential knowledge and skills, and to develop fundamental habits that will make worth while contributions to society.

This problem was limited to the instructional needs of the thirty children enrolled in the Dunbar Elementary School of Sulphur, Oklahoma. All information sought through visitation of other small rural schools and surveying literature was used wholly for its direct bearing upon the improvement of the Curriculum of the Dunbar Elementary School.
