DESIGNS FOR SMALL HIGH SCHOOLS.
NIMNICHT, GLENDON P.; PARTRIDGE, ARTHUR R.
BY MULTIPLE-CLASS TEACHING AND FLEXIBLE SCHEDULING, SMALL HIGH SCHOOLS CAN OFFER EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMS COMPARABLE TO THOSE OFFERED BY LARGE HIGH SCHOOLS. WITH ATTENTION TO FACILITY DESIGN, NOT ONLY CAN SCIENCE, MATHEMATICS, FOREIGN LANGUAGE, ART, BUSINESS, INDUSTRIAL ARTS, HOMEMAKING, ENGLISH, AND SOCIAL STUDIES BE OFFERED TO TWO OR MORE GROUPS OF STUDENTS IN THE SAME ROOM AT THE SAME TIME UNDER ONE TEACHER, BUT THEY CAN BE OFFERED IN SUCH A WAY THAT INDIVIDUAL INSTRUCTION IS GIVEN. A MUSIC APPRECIATION PROGRAM CAN BE PROVIDED, ENRICHING THE MUSICAL EXPERIENCE OF THE STUDENTS. PHYSICAL EDUCATION FACILITIES MAY BE MADE ADEQUATE BY OVERLAP IN USAGE AND BY COMMUNITY COOPERATION AND FINANCING. FACILITIES FOR FARM MECHANICS CAN BE COMBINED WITH THOSE OF GENERAL INDUSTRIAL ARTS, SO THAT WITH THE ADDITION OF AN ACTUAL FARM EXPERIENCE, AN EXCELLENT COURSE CAN BE OFFERED IN VOCATIONAL AGRICULTURE. MULTIPLE USE OF SPACE AND FACILITIES CAN ALSO APPLY TO THE GYMNASIUM, THE AUDITORIUM, THE COMMONS (LUNCHROOM AND CORRIDORS), AND THE ADMINISTRATIVE AREA. THIRTY-SEVEN SELECTED SCHOOLS WERE VISITED IN 22 STATES FOR THIS STUDY. THIS DOCUMENT IS AVAILABLE ON REQUEST FROM EDUCATIONAL PLANNING SERVICE, COLORADO STATE COLLEGE, GREELEY, COLORADO. (MF)
