School Without Walls.
Earthman, Glen I.
This paper presents an overview of the Philadelphia Parkway Project. The two distinguishing features of the school are (1) the absence of the usual physical school building, and (2) the full utilization of the community as a learning laboratory. Students' learning experiences derive from classes offered by participating cultural, commercial, governmental, and educational institutions; e.g., a biology class is taught by one of the curators in the Museum of Natural Science, or an art class is held in the Philadelphia Art Museum. Required mathematics and language arts courses are taught by Parkway faculty within tutorial troups, and students participate in seminars where they can translate their learning experiences into meaningful concepts.
