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 222 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.

The Open plan school; report of a national seminar by Institute for Development of Educational Activities( Book )

6 editions published between 1970 and 1971 in English and held by 68 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A national seminar brought together a large group of architects, teachers, and administrators who have had experience with open plan schools. The participants agreed that the open plan school system with its flexible physical arrangement and flexible teaching program holds great promise as a way of training people to think for themselves. An architect traced the history of open plan schools from the early day one-room schoolhouse to the sophisticated educational complexes of today. The seminar participants discussed both the intangible aspects of an open environment, such as individualized instruction, team teaching, student grouping, and the new role of the school administrator, and the tangible aspects of the school building and its furnishings. They emphasized that open schools are only one part of a quality education program and that the attitudes of teachers, administrators, and students must be consistent with the open nature of the physical facilities at such a school.

4 editions published between 1967 and 1973 in English and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

At an international symposium on individualized instruction, educators from America and Europe expressed their concern that the societal need for unity, cohesion, and a sense of mission is in direct conflict with the individual's need for diversity and freedom. They pointed to parents, administrators, teachers, and teacher educators as the major roadblocks to individualized instruction, and they expressed concern that conventional grade grouping was also hindering individualization. Among the other topics of discussion at the symposium were the explosion of knowledge, educational technology, mass media, individual differences, the role of the guidance counselor, the balance between individuality and conformity, and the changing curriculum. The conferees pointed to the need for developing styles of teaching based upon styles of learning, agreed that students should be confronted with a variety of learning activities, suggested that the techniques of a good first grade teacher may be models of individualization, and approved of greater use of the independent study technique.
