Dropkin, Ruth, Ed.; Tobier, Arthur, Ed.
This document is devoted to articles on the Open Corridor program, especially as it concerns parent participation. The first piece, "Letter from the Director," discusses trends in the parent participation aspect of the program, including problems for parents and teachers. It notes that a major problem for parents in the program has been their concern for a specific classroom and a specific teacher rather than the development of new reorganizations or generalized considerations or remolding school structure. "A Principal's View" and "Parents in the Corridor" are two first-hand reactions to the Open Corridor program. "Parents Speak Out" presents excerpts from interviews with two parents on their reactions to the program. "Movement as Language" is an account by a member of the staff of the Workshop Center for Open Education, based on her experiences with teachers in the Open Corridor program. The article stresses showing teachers the possible uses of movement with children to extend learning activities. (JA)
