SCHOOLS AND INNOVATION--A PROLOGUE TO PLANNING.
WIENS, JOHN L.; AND OTHERS
PROVIDING A COMMON GROUND OF UNDERSTANDING BETWEEN EDUCATOR AND ARCHITECT IN THE PLANNING PROCESS IS THE GOAL OF THIS REPORT. CLOSING THE COMMUNICATION GAP BETWEEN THE TWO GROUPS IS ACCOMPLISHED BY DISCUSSING EDUCATIONAL INNOVATIONS. ABANDONMENT OF THE TRADITIONAL PUPIL-TEACHER RATIO FORMULA IN FAVOR OF VARYING GROUP SIZES IS SUGGESTED AS A SOLUTION TO SPACE AND PERSONNEL SHORTAGES. INDIVIDUAL DIFFERENCES AMONG STUDENTS ARE SUGGESTED AS REASONS FOR BREAKING LOCKSTEP TECHNIQUES WITH SUCH ALTERNATIVES AS NONGRADING, HOMOGENEOUS TRACKING, INDIVIDUALIZED SCHEDULING, AND INDIVIDUAL STUDENT PROGRESS. EFFECTIVE STAFF ORGANIZATION IS VIEWED FROM VARIOUS PERSPECTIVES SUCH AS TRADITIONAL, EXTENDED, MODULAR, OR STUDENT PLANNED PERIODS. EXTENSION OF THE SCHOOL DAY, WEEK, AND YEAR IS ALSO CONSIDERED. NEW CONCEPTS IN PLANT ORGANIZATION ARE OFFERED AS RESPONSES TO NEW PHILOSOPHIES OF EDUCATION. IMPROVED ADMINISTRATIVE AND COMMUNICATIVE PROCESSES, COMPUTER SCHEDULING, MECHANIZED LIBRARY SERVICES, AND NEW AUDIO-VISUAL MEDIA ARE INCLUDED AMONG THE INNOVATIONS DISCUSSED. WHILE MOST OF THE REPORT DEALS WITH THAT PHASE OF EDUCATION INVOLVING YOUTH, ATTENTION ALSO IS DIRECTED TO THE ROLE OF THE SCHOOL BEYOND TRADITIONAL BOUNDARIES. THE REPORT INCLUDES A BIBLIOGRAPHY FOR EACH CHAPTER. (RH)
