HORACE MANN-LINCOLN INSTITUTE OF SCHOOL EXPERIMENTATION. ANNUAL REPORT 1962-1963.
FOSHAY, ARTHUR W.
OVER A PERIOD OF 21 YEARS THE HORACE MANN-LINCOLN INSTITUTE HAS UNDERGONE MANY CHANGES. ITS ORIGINAL PURPOSE, FIELD EXPERIMENTATION, WAS SOMEWHAT FORMALIZED INTO ACTION RESEARCH, THE IDEA BEING THAT RESEARCH IN CONJUNCTION WITH ACTION MIGHT AMOUNT TO AN EDUCATIONAL FORM OF THE WAR-TIME "OPERATIONS RESEARCH." GRADUALLY, THE INSTITUTE STAFF HAS GIVEN UP ITS EXCLUSIVE EMPHASIS ON FIELD EXPERIMENTATION. STAFF MEMBERS ENCOUNTERED A NUMBER OF PROBLEMS IN THE FIELD THAT REQUIRED A FORMAL RESEARCH APPROACH, AND NOT ALL PROBLEMS CAN BE FORMULATED AND SOLVED AT THE POINT OF ACTION. THE PROBLEM OF CURRICULUM CHANGE ITSELF, FOR EXAMPLE, REQUIRES CAREFUL THEORETICAL FORMULATION. STAFF PERSONNEL HAVE CHANGED, THUS BRINGING IN NEW POPLE WITH NEW INTERESTS. MOST OF THE STUDIES IN THE INSTITUTE CONSIST OF FORMAL RESEARCH PROJECTS. ONLY TWO, THE MATHEMATICS PROJECT AND THE EDUCATIONAL COMMUNICATIONS PROJECT, ARE DIRECT ATTEMPTS AT CLASSROOM INNOVATION. RESEARCH PROJECTS CURRENTLY UNDERWAY ARE--PRESCHOOL READING ABILITY, URBAN EDUCATION, CAREER PATTERN STUDY, EDUCATION FOR SELF-UNDERSTANDING, CHILDREN'S THINKING, LEADERSHIP TRAINING, AND CURRICULUM DEVELOPMENT.
