PROFILES OF SIGNIFICANT SCHOOLS--HIGH SCHOOLS 1962, A STATUS REPORT ON EDUCATIONAL CHANGE AND ARCHITECTURAL CONSEQUENCE.
Educational Facilities Labs., Inc., New York, NY.
AMERICAN HIGH SCHOOLS ARE CHANGING THEIR TEACHING METHODS AND THEIR BUILDING DESIGNS. TEACHERS WILL WORK IN TEAMS, AND STUDENTS WILL RECEIVE MORE INDIVIDUALIZED FORMS OF INSTRUCTION. STUDENTS WILL ASSUME MUCH OF THE RESPONSIBILITY FOR THEIR LEARNING THROUGH THE USE OF WELL-STOCKED LIBRARIES AND INDEPENDENT STUDY SPACES. HIGH SCHOOLS WILL OPERATE THROUGHOUT THE YEAR AS EDUCATIONAL AND RECREATIONAL COMMUNITY CENTERS FOR PERSONS OF ALL AGES. THE SCHOOLS WILL BE DESIGNED TO PROVIDE AN ENVIRONMENT MORE AMENABLE FOR GROWTH FOR BOTH STUDENTS AND TEACHERS. A MORE NATURAL RELATIONSHIP WILL EXIST BETWEEN THE VARIOUS SCHOOL PARTS. SCHOOLS WILL USE MACHINE ASSISTANCE FOR ADMINISTRATIVE WORK AND CLERICAL CHORES. PROGRAMED LEARNING MACHINES, TELEVISION, AUTOMATED TESTING, AND AUDIOVISUAL DEVICES WILL BE USED AS TEACHING AIDS. EQUIPMENT COSTS WILL COMPRISE A LARGER PORTION OF THE SCHOOL BUDGET. IN THE LONG RUN, MORE USEFUL AND ECONOMICAL SCHOOLS SHOULD RESULT.
