A Bibliography of Open Education.
Barth, Roland S.; Rathbone, Charles H.
"Open education" is used here to designate a general approach to teaching and learning which presumes the child's right and competence to make important decisions; views the teacher more as a facilitator of learning than a transmitter of knowledge; encompasses ideas such as vertical or "family" grouping; and offers flexibility of time, administration, and space, an environment rich in manipulative materials, and abundant alternatives and choice for students. This bibliography is designed to provide a starting place for those interested in open education and to make available to those already familiar with these ideas and practices an extensive resource which will assist further exploration. It is divided into three sections--books and articles, films, and periodicals--and each of the 265 annotated entries is listed under its appropriate category alphabetically by author. The publisher or distributor is included with each entry and complete addresses are also provided in a separate list. An index provides access to entries both by author and title. (Author/SH)
