Creating Humane Schools.
Glines, Don E.
This document, a revision and retitled version of "Implementing Different and Better Schools," 1969 (ED 051 110), attempts to provide guidelines for change in schools to help those educators who need to be convinced of the need for change, 2) those who are ready but need to be told what to do, and 3) those with some experience of change who need additional ideas. The material is organized in four major sections: 1) "Introducing Challenges for Relevant Educational Alternatives," which includes the description of one specific school program to indicate that the ideas set out are practical and not theoretical; 2) "Why Innovation and Research Demand Priority," which explains why a great deal more innovation is necessary in all the schools of the country and analyzes present practices and offers suggestions for evaluating program effectiveness; 3) "How Guideline Recipes Achieve Optional Patterns," which identifies 69 changes, both general and specific and discusses them briefly in six groups of components: philosophy, instruction, learning, structure, technology, and reporting; and 4) "Summarizing Commentary with Descriptions and Bibliography," which includes extracts from two articles on innovative schools and an extensive bibliography divided into two parts, "Literature Answering Why," and "Books Suggesting How."
