Open Plan Schools. Educational Facilities Review Series Number 6.
Baas, Alan M.
This document reviews the literature, previously cited in RIE, concerned with open plan schools. The open plan design is defined as one that encompasses large, open areas that shelter numbers of students, paraprofessionals, and teachers in a climate of daily change. Central to the discussion of the open plan concept is the consideration that a school building utilizing this innovative concept is being considered less and less as a static "facility" and more and more as a "catalyst" or a dynamic agent in the learning process. The 26 documents surveyed in this review are discussed under (1) flexibility and innovation, (2) evaluation, (3) information sources, (4) application, and (5) variation. (MLF)
