The graying of the campus : a report from EFL by Ruth Weinstock( Book )

3 editions published in 1978 in English and held by 484 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report, in response to the new enrollment trend of older persons entering the nation's institutions of higher education, examines the ways colleges and universities can meet the needs of this new student population. Discussed are the facility, attitudinal, programmatic, curricular, financial, and managerial considerations that could constitute barriers or be out of harmony with the needs of these older students or discourage their enrollment into higher education. The demographics and new observations about the older population that are shattering old myths about aging are discussed, as are ideas on how to open campuses up to an older student population, including examples from colleges that have successfully accommodated these new students. Administrative and environmental areas that can impact the older student are addressed such as counseling services, curricular content and structure, registration issues and specific environmental considerations, including transportation needs and classroom conditions. The report concludes with comments on faculty, administrative, and support services costs and paying for these services when serving an older student population. (Contains 46 references.) (Gr)
The school library by Ralph E Ellsworth( Book )

9 editions published between 1963 and 1968 in English and held by 428 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Existing school library problems are explored to aid in planning for the kinds of library facilities that comprise current and future needs. Basic to all problems are the attitudes of the school administrator and librarian. These two must learn to understand the role of the library mutually. One area of necessary agreement is library content. The authors recommend that a library should contain all kinds of carriers of knowledge (books, audiovisual media, films tapes, recorders, teaching machines), and thus become a kind of teaching laboratory amplifying and extending other methods of education. A library can function best in a system using a form of team teaching which enables students and teachers to have time to use the library. The concept of a school library begins with definitions of the kinds of student and teacher activities it is expected to house. Then the library is organized according to materials, staff, and physical setting. The physical contents and layout, including a variety of arrangements, environmental elements in planning, and a gallery of prototype architectural designs, offer souces and ideas for the physical plant. Photographic illustrations and architectural sketches supplement the text
The secondary school : reduction, renewal, and real estate : a report from Educational Facilities Laboratories by Educational Facilities Laboratories( Book )

8 editions published in 1976 in English and held by 381 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

National census data suggest a sustained period of no growth or modest growth in births; however, migration variations in the metropolitan and nonmetropolitan areas and in different regions of the country portend the importance of local community planning for the future of high school facilities. The place of the high school in the scheme of schooling is receiving an unprecedented searching reappraisal. New programs are being developed to meet the needs of high school age students and also to expand the utilization of school facilities by community members. Districts experiencing declining enrollments have tried a variety of options. First among these is redeployment of surplus space to accommodate those activities and programs that have been deprived of adequate space. Other uses of surplus space have been for vocational, special, and adult education programs; teacher centers; and community schools as service centers. Finally, rather than destroy the local high school (a strong community symbol), some areas enacted legislation enabling the private sector to convert unused school buildings to shops, theaters, and other community amenities.

The new campus in Britain; ideas of consequence for the United States by Richard P Dober( Book )

5 editions published in 1965 in English and held by 325 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A revolution in planning was triggered by a report of the special committee on education which investigated the availability of places in relation to student enrollment projection. Six new universities were constructed as a result with an emphasis on design. The design was developed to help solve the dilemma of "belonging" at large institutions. This was done by development of the concept of a continuous teaching environment. This concept describes a physical form that preserves communication and contact between all parts of the institution while allowing external accretion and internal change. Its essential features are geared to--(1) conformity with educational philosophy of maximum interdisciplinary contact, (2) integration of living and working areas, (3) separation of vehicular and pedestrian ways, (4) largely self-sufficient urban community, (5) optimum contrast between development and surrounding site, (6) a 24-hour university, and (7) opportunity of limitless expansion. Photographs and diagrams illustrate this concept in the case of each of the six institutions.

Stopping school property damage : design and administrative guidelines to reduce school vandalism by John Zeisel( Book )

2 editions published in 1976 in English and held by 289 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This publication provides practical guidelines to design future school buildings and to set up administrative programs for existing structures that can cut the cost of both intentional and accidental school property damage. The first section on building exterior design responses discusses ways to reduce the ongoing cost of property damage by careful design of a school's physical plant. The section on building interior design responses considers ways to minimize costs of property damage and maintenance through design and materials specification. The third section contains ways to cut property damage costs through administrative programs aimed at involving students in the school, at using personnel effectively, and at keeping "eyes on the school." The fourth section, design accountability checklists, presents one general question for every major design issue and then a series of specific "yes-no" questions to determine if the issue has been taken into account by the architect in the design. The final section is an annotated bibliography of literature on vandalism and property damage. (Author/MLF)

The greening of the high school : a report on a conference by Ruth Weinstock( Book )

4 editions published in 1973 in English and held by 225 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report describes a conference co-sponsored in April of 1972 by Educational Facilities Laboratory and the Institute for Development of Educational Activities, in which 35 educators met to seek ways of making secondary schools healthier, happier, more productive places for young people. The point was made that since America has produced a new type of adolescent to which the traditional regimented high school is inappropriate, it is necessary to develop a new type of institution to fit the modern student. Several cases illustrative of alternatives to traditional schooling are presented, indicating emphases placed upon individual needs, student choices, the social aspects of schooling, and the value of using other community institutions in addition to the school in the educational program. The final section discusses the elements involved in changing established institutions such as schools, including such matters as money, charisma, the dangers of creating fads, how to break institutional molds, new roles for teachers, leadership, and the overcoming of legal constraints.
