The Open School. An Annotated Bibliography. Current Bibliography No. 4.
Cockburn, Ilze, Comp.
In 1970, the OISE library published an annotated bibliography entitled, Open Plan (See ED 051 549), that covered the design of open plan schools and the educational practices connected with these facilities. Since then, a clearer distinction has developed between the terms "open plan" and "open education." This revision of the earlier volume covers both these aspects of openness, but in two separate parts. Part I covers open education. Much of the current literature on open education is concerned with (1) evolving a theory to support or validate existing practices and (2) with developing criteria to measure the openness of programs to provide a framework for research. The items in this section are arranged under general; theory, analyses, definitions; and research. Part II covers open plan schools. The earlier concentration on design and construction has changed to an emphasis on the assessment of the effects of open space on students, teachers, and educational programs. Thus there is an expanding literature of research. The items in this section are arranged under designs and descriptions, and research. The overall concentration is on selected references to materials published since 1970, but a few basic items and pertinent Canadian references from the earlier bibliography are also included. Those items available from the ERIC document reproduction service are so indicated. (Compiler/EA)
