Portraits of high schools : a supplement to High school : a report on secondary education in America by Vito Perrone( Book )

6 editions published in 1985 in English and held by 328 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Profiles of selected high schools represent part of the research done in preparation for the Carnegie Foundation's report, High Schools: a Report on Secondary Education in America. The testimony and behavior of youths and adults in real schools, and detailed descriptions of representative institutions, reflect the major themes of the report. These themes are: the contextual changes affecting the school, students, school goals, school climate, leadership, curriculum, teachers, teaching and learning, education beyond the school, and media and technology. The schools are grouped according to the following geographic characteristics and specializations: urban, suburban, rural, alternative, vocational, and selective academic. Summary recommendations include (1) the development of more explicit goals that are clear to teachers, students, and their parents; (2) more curriculum development to support inquiry, problem solving, and more active learning as well as to attend to interdisciplinary studies and greater integration of students' academic and prevocational experiences; (3) in-house professional development for teachers; (4) reduced teaching loads to allow more time for individualization; and (5) a closer tie between colleges, universities, and schools to provide a context for getting more university students involved in schools.
