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

6 editions published in 1978 in English and Undetermined and held by 456 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 greening of the high school : a report on a conference by Ruth Weinstock( Book )

7 editions published in 1973 in English and held by 224 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.

To build or not to build; a report on the utilization and planning of instructional facilities in small colleges by Educational Facilities Laboratories( Book )

9 editions published between 1962 and 1970 in English and held by 196 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A solution to problems of growing college enrollments is to increase the efficiency of use of existing space to make room for more students, rather than to restrict enrollments or to create more space. Planning of college facilities must include analysis of the present plant, the instructional program, the student body, and the financial structure. On a well planned campus, facilities are zoned according to function. Facility utilization is a function of the extent of space provided, room-period utilization, and student station utilization. Improvement of utilization is a function of class distribution, length of the week, the school year, curriculum units and credits, relationship of credits and class hours, laboratory space, flexibility of classrooms, proliferation of courses, proprietary attitudes of staff, and pressures for more space. A space utilization workbook is included. This document is also available from educational facilities laboratories, 477 madison avenue, new york, new york. (Wo)

Learning work : breaking the mold in youth employment programs by Alexandra Weinbaum( Book )

2 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 27 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Youth Employment Program Assistance Project was a New York City initiative to demonstrate how employment training for out-of-school, economically disadvantaged youth can be made educationally vigorous. It involved four training programs with a few hundred students. The project focused on the following principles and goals: all learning requires higher-order thinking skills, skills should be taught in context, learning is a social activity, and learning should have intrinsic and extrinsic reward. Project activities included technical assistance workshops, on-site technical assistance, monthly meetings, program directors meetings, and technical assistance workshops for other programs. Policy implications from the project were discussed and the following recommendations made for similar projects: (1) train for investigations of workplaces in which students will be placed; (2) collaborate with educators; (3) provide staff development; (4) strengthen organizational capacity; (5) allocate resources for planning; (6) develop new forms of student assessment; (7) develop new criteria for program performance; and (8) allow time for change.

Arts in the Curriculum by Ruth Weinstock( Book )

3 editions published between 1980 and 1982 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This monograph, part of an ongoing series, discusses the need for school arts programs and provides some examples of how the arts can be infused into the regular curriculum at the elementary level. Support systems for such programs are also discussed. Properly conceived, the arts constitute a great integrating force in the curriculum. To achieve such an end they must be viewed as a component of every discipline. The arts are the responsibility of all teachers. Examples of how the arts are being infused into the curriculum in various schools are included. For example, at the Grover Elementary School in Marblehead, Massachusetts, the harpsicord and its music are studied in physics, shop, social studies, and language arts courses. The science and shop teacher demonstrates how the harpsichord sound is produced. Relating the discussion to the basic principles of sound, a study unit in physics is introduced. In shop, students make their own monochords. They learn how design affects change in tone and how materials affect the quality of sound. In social studies, students learn about the composers Bach, Handel, and Scarlatti, social conditions, musical taste, and articistic decoration of the 17th and 18th centuries. The monograph concludes with a discussion of support systems including, regional, districtwide, and statewide systems. (Author/RM)

Schools in the 70's the Case of the Relevant Schoolhouse. NASSP Dialogue by Jonathan King( Book )

1 edition published in 1970 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Educational Facilities Laboratories (EFL) personnel describe several schools constructed under a building-systems program. All these systems schools have in common: (1) long spans for a minimum of supporting columns; (2) systems for heating, cooling, and ventilating; (3) movable walls; and (4) nonglare lighting systems with easily rearranged elements. The interior furnishings and equipment of one school have been systematically coordinated to harmonize with the building design and offer freedom of space and movement. Also included in the paper is a description of a nonschool open plan design called the "office landscape," the economics of which are summarized. (MLF)

British Open University Media Used in Context by Ruth Weinstock( Book )

2 editions published in 1975 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The experience of an open university with the uses of technology in higher education is documented. The emphasis is on its exemplary use of educational technology in context. Examination of the details of how the Open University employs media to serve a large dispersed student body may benefit others who plan to expand or modify their own uses of educational technology. Details are given on traditional and innovative curricula, study materials and support activities, local study centers, teachers and course production, the integration of the media, student performance, central university facilities, and costs. Certain features considered to be significant factors in the success of the university are outlined along with existing or potential problems. (Author/LBH)

Profiles of Significant Schools--Heathcote Elementary School, Scarsdale, New York by Ruth Weinstock( Book )

1 edition published in 1960 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The design of the heathcote elementary school was investigated in terms of the school's educational program, architectural innovations in design, and special features of interest. The planners of heathcote were committed to two fundamental principles of education--one dealing with the conditions under which children learn best, the other dealing with the process of learning. The building's design, from its physical attractiveness to the quantity and arrangement of its facilities, flowed from these two educational principles. The physical specifications developed by the planners were broadly these--a beautiful plant attractive to the eye and pleasing to all the senses, the elimination of institutionalism, the creation of separate small educational neighborhoods for different groups enabling the child to have a sense of identity with his own group of rooms, the arrangement of the flow of space within the classroom, from building to building, and from indoors to outdoors, in order to allow maximum freedom of movement and a minimum number of rules, the provision for ample spaces, with such fluidity and variety which would be adaptable to the greatest range of activities, the use of interior furnishings and equipment which exable children to control themselves, and the use of the outdoors as a resource center that could be incorporated, as much as possible, into the school itself. These directives were used by the architects who designed the school. The building was decentralized with central core and separated clusters of classroom
