Open Plan Secondary Schools: An Annotated Bibliography. Educational Issues: Review No. 3.
Morrison, Charles M.
This bibliography lists 78 documents in English and 7 in Swedish on the subject of open plan secondary schools. These documents are not annotated individually, but are discussed in a text that is divided into ten major subject areas: Theory, Buildings, Staffing, Scotland, England, International, U.S.A., Canada, Sweden, and Australia. Each of these areas is further divided into a number of subtopics. The 14-page text discusses findings relevant to each subtopic, referring by number to the appropriate bibliographic entries, and often citing page numbers where important concepts are discussed. Documents covering student attitudes, teacher attitudes, and the open plan school's impact on learning motivation are included among the citations. An introductory essay by Robert R. Reid touches on the characteristics of open plan secondary schools, particularly as found in Scotland, and discusses the nature of the educational processes such schools can accommodate. (PGD)
