APPALACHIA TRIES A CO-OP.
RHODES, CHARLES W.
EDUCATORS AT THE APPALACHIA EDUCATIONAL LABORATORY IN CHARLESTON, WEST VIRGINIA, HAVE MODIFIED THE EDUCATIONAL PARK CONCEPT TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF SCHOOL CONSOLIDATION WHILE MAINTAINING A PERSONAL RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN TEACHER AND PUPIL. AS PROPOSED, THE EDUCATIONAL COOPERATIVE WOULD CONSIST OF A CENTRAL FACILITY, JOINTLY CONSTRUCTED BY SMALLER SCHOOLS IN THE AREA CONCERNED. FROM THIS FACILITY, TELEVISED LECTURES BY MASTER TEACHERS IN A WIDE RANGE OF SUBJECT MATTER AREAS WOULD BE TRANSMITTED TO LOCAL SCHOOLS. A FLEET OF MOBILE LABORATORIES WOULD BE SCHEDULED AND DISPATCHED FROM THE CENTRAL FACILITY TO PARTICIPATING SCHOOLS. PROPOSED COMPONENTS OF A CO-OP OF THIS SIZE INCLUDE EDUCATIONAL TELEVISION, MOBILE FACILITIES, COMPUTER ASSISTED INSTRUCTION, SHARED COURSES, EARLY CHILDHOOD EDUCATION, AND VOCATIONAL GUIDANCE. FIELD TESTS ARE BEING CONDUCTED IN 6 APPALACHIAN STATES, EACH CONCENTRATING ON A SINGLE PHASE OF THE PROPOSED CO-OP. EVALUATION HAS ALSO BEEN UNDERTAKEN ON AN INTERACTION ANALYSIS TECHNIQUE DESIGNED TO AID IN-SERVICE TEACHERS IN DETERMINING THE DEGREE OF FREEDOM A STUDENT MAY BE ALLOWED IN EXPRESSING HIMSELF, WHILE PERMITTING CONTROL BY THE TEACHER.
