An Inquiry Into Curriculum Theories and Open Classroom Practices.
Dill, Nancy L.
The main objective of this research was to look at open classroom practices in an analytical way. Network analysis was used to collect and organize data about individual classrooms. The open classrooms observed were located in public schools in the New York area and ranged from grades K to 6. The open classrooms observed by the investigator were ones in which 1) the research had student teachers and was there as a supervisor; 2) the researcher had undergraduate students from an elective course, "Analyzing Teaching Behavior"; and 3) the researcher had graduate students from a research course who were the regular, full-time classroom teachers. Six major findings are presented. Enough open classrooms do not exist in this country to allow for adequate sampling procedures; thus, the findings are considered tentative. A 24-item bibliography is included. (MJM)
