Walder, Leopold O.
Review of documents, formal and informal interviews, questionnaires, and observations of participants interacting with space, furniture, equipment, and materials were the main methods used to assess the correspondence between the objectives of this training cycle and its accomplishments. The participants included primarily teacher trainees and the training staff, administrators, pupils, and visitors. The cycle was conducted during the regular school year, during which time the teachers were trained in the skills necessary to the open plan classroom and the participants moved into the open space facility. Systematic followup consultation was provided in an ongoing training series. All the evidence points to the training objectives having been achieved. Recommendations to continue most of the practices and to modify some are provided. (Author/MLF)
