HOW TO CREATE TERRITORY FOR LEARNING IN THE SECONDARY SCHOOL. THE TURF CONCEPT FOR THE MULTISCHOOL.
BRUBAKER, CHARLES WILLIAM; LEGGETT, STANTON
TERRITORY FOR LEARNING IN THE SECONDARY SCHOOL AND THE TURF CONCEPT FOR THE MULTISCHOOL ARE DEALT WITH. CONCEPTS SHOULD BE USED IN ESTABLISHING A FIRM FOUNDATION FOR MULTISCHOOLS. MULTISCHOOLS DEAL WITH EVER-INCREASING MASSES OF STUDENTS, DEVELOPMENTS IN EDUCATIONAL AND IN MANAGERIAL COMPETENCE, MINIATURIZATION, ELECTRONICS, AND IN UNDERSTANDING INDIVIDUALIZED EDUCATION, MAKING POSSIBLE EXPLOITATION OF STUDENT LEARNING MODULES WITHIN THE INSTITUTION. THE MULTISCHOOL IS A SECONDARY SCHOOL DESIGN IN RESPONSE TO TODAY'S NEEDS. THE TURF CONCEPT PROVIDES A HOME BASE FOR EACH INDIVIDUAL WHICH HE SHARES WITH FOUR OTHER STUDENTS. EXAMPLES ARE PROVIDED SHOWING--(1) HOW A COMBINATION OF TWENTY TURFS AND A FACULTY TEAM CAN CREATE A CLUSTER OF 100 STUDENTS, AND (2) HOW TEN CLUSTERS CAN BE PUT AROUND RESOURCES TO FORM A 1000 STUDENT SCHOOL. CONSIDERATION IS ALSO GIVEN TO THE NEED FOR SPECIALIZED FACILITIES AT A CENTRAL HUB WITH IMPLICATIONS OF ASSEMBLING ALL THE COMPONENTS TO CREATE A 4,000 STUDENT MULTISCHOOL. THE MULTISCHOOL IN THE CITY MUST BECOME THE FOCAL POINT FOR URBAN LIFE AND BE PLANNED WITH OTHER EDUCATIONAL, CULTURAL AND COMMUNITY FACILITIES. COMPONENTS COULD BE STACKED IN THE CITY WHERE LAND IS VERY EXPENSIVE CREATING A HIGH-RISE MULTISCHOOL. INCLUDED IS AN EXAMPLE OF THE EVANSTON TOWNSHIP HIGH SCHOOL WHICH SHOWS THE WAY TOWARD MULTISCHOOL. DIAGRAMS, PLANS AND PHOTOGRAPHS ACCOMPANY THE TEXT. REPRINTED FROM THE MARCH 1968 ISSUE OF NATION'S SCHOOLS, THE ARTICLE MAY BE OBTAINED FROM THE EDITOR, MCGRAW-HILL, INC., 1050 MERCHANDISE MART, CHICAGO, ILLINOIS 60654. (RK)
