Developing Open Education in America; A Review of Theory and Practice in the Public Schools.
This review of theory and practice in public school contrasts American open education with English implementation, providing case studies on open education projects. Chapter 1 provides an overview of this book and discusses education reform in America, characteristics of open classrooms, and the curious teacher. Chapters 2-6 focus on the following factors as they have been used to support teachers in different American public schools: (a) the role of the principal, (b) the resource of an in-classroom advisor, (c) new curriculum, (d) inservice education for teachers, and (e) relationship with parents. Chapter 7 describes problems in evaluation that open education poses for teachers, administrators, and parents and that relate to all support factors. A bibliography of references and curriculum materials and questions for review are appended. (PD)
