Planning for a Change; A Resource Catalogue. A Report.
Center for New Schools, Inc., Chicago, IL.
This 293-item catalog lists selected entries that should be useful to planning groups and others interested in establishing new school programs. It is concerned with what is considered a crucial step in the planning process--searching for alternatives. Past experience with school-community planning efforts has shown that, in the search for alternatives, ideas and resources that exist within the group or the community, other school programs attempting new approaches, and a variety of written and visual materials about new educational ideas and programs are most helpful. This volume is a tool for assisting a planning group in using the last mentioned source of ideas. Cited are books, articles, pamphlets, films, and television videotapes that describe and analyze various types of new learning programs. The items are arranged under the topical headings: (1) Education Today--What's Wrong with It; (2) Education and the Future; (3) What Needs To Be Changed To Change Schools; (4) Equal Educational Opportunity; (5) Evaluating New Learning Programs; and (6) Additional Sources for Planning Groups. Two indexes provide a film index and the addresses of publishers and distributors. The publisher or distributor of each entry is listed in each reference. Materials relevant to equal educational opportunity, carrer education, individualized instruction, and evaluation are marked appropriately. (Author/EA)
