PROJECTION OF THOUGHTS AND IDEAS ON SCHOOL BUILDINGS OF TOMORROW--A SPEECH GIVEN TO THE 1ST ANNUAL SCHOOL ADMINISTRATORS SEMINAR OF THE AMERICAN SCHOOL FOOD SERVICE ASSOCIATION (VAIL VILLAGE, COLORADO, DEC. 6-8, 1967). (TITLE SUPPLIED).
BURR, DONALD F.
THE SPEECH RECOUNTS THE NEW DIRECTION IN THE FLEXIBLE DESIGN OF FUTURE PUBLIC SCHOOLS. IT IS PREDICTED THAT WITHIN THE NEXT SEVERAL DECADES A MULTITUDE OF NEW SCHOOL BUILDINGS WILL BE CONSTRUCTED IN ADDITION TO THE REPLACEMENT OF EXISTING SCHOOL PLANTS AS THEY BECOME OUTDATED AND INADEQUATE FOR NEW INSTRUCTIONAL PROGRAMS. THE NEW INSTRUCTIONAL PROGRAMS WILL BE DESIGNED TO FOSTER INDIVIDUALIZED INSTRUCTION AS TEACHER TECHNIQUES AND INSTRUCTIONAL EXPERIENCES ARE REDUCED TO COMPUTER LANGUAGE FOR EASY RETRIEVAL IN TEACHING MACHINES. THE EMPHASIS IN BUILDING DESIGN IN THE FUTURE WILL BE ON LEARNING ENVIORNMENT, AND WILL REFLECT CONCERN FOR WHAT THE BUILDING DOES RATHER THAN WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE. SECONDARILY, THE WRITER PREDICTS THE ABANDONMENT OF THE "CLASS A" HOT LUNCH PROGRAM IN THE NEAR FUTURE AS SCHOOL PARKS ARE DEVELOPED AND AS INDIVIDUALIZED INSTRUCTION BECOMES THE MODE OF PUPIL LEARNING. THE LUNCH HOUR WILL CEASE TO DOMINATE THE DAILY SCHEDULE AND WILL BE DISPLACED BY THE AUTOMAT APPROACH TO PUPIL FEEDING PROGRAMS. PUPIL NUTRITION WILL BE ASSURED AS BETTER INSTRUCTION IN NUTRITIONAL NEEDS IS THE PRODUCT OF TEACHING. LUNCHES WILL NOT BE RESTRICTED TO ONE MENU, THEY WILL BE SENSITIVE TO THE DIFFERENT CULTURES OF OUR SOCIETY, AND WILL PROVIDE THE PUPIL THE OPPORTUNITY TO EXERCISE CHOICE IN HIS EATING HABITS. (JZ)
