Open education is not a single formula or philosophy--it is a process and a style of schooling that assumes that children can learn best at their own rate, following their own curiosity and desire to learn; that the young learn responsibility by making real choices; that a teacher serves best by helping children follow through on their questions and choices; and that schools should be flexible learning centers. The more than 20 films and nearly 30 publications listed in this catalog were produced to help define and bolster the open education movement and are listed here in response to a need for dissemination of information about such materials. The catalog is divided into separate listings for films and publications: each entry is listed alphabetically by title and includes the author or producer's name, a description, the price, and cross-references to films or publications. Ordering information is offered at the end. (Author/SH)
