The Workshop Center SAMPLER, 1974.
Dropkin, Ruth, Ed.
In this collection of selected offerings of the Workshop Center for Open Education, workshop leaders, both center staff and consultants, share the notes and references that were part of the sessions held during the first year-and-a-half of the Workshop Center's existence. The presentations, which are a cross-section of the Center's scheduled workshops for that period, emphasize the practical aspects of work in open classrooms, and they should be considered a supplement to the theoretical papers published by the Center. The first chapter focuses on classroom organization and discusses planning, record keeping, and safety. The second chapter presents activities such as woodworking, cooking, drawing, weaving, and printing. The third chapter highlights workshops dealing with curriculum in the language arts, science, and movement and music. The fourth chapter, which is on resources, is divided into five sections: a) people and places for black and Asian-American studies, b) short bibliographies, c) sources for materials and ideas for classroom activities, d) nonsexist books for kindergarten through the third grade, and e) a trip list. A teacher's reaction to the workshops offered at the Center is included in the document. (HMD)
