This paper contains the three sets of interviews (the Children's Interview, the Parent's Interview, and the Teacher's Interview) used to describe and evaluate the classroom learning environments in the New School's Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL) during 1971-72. The purpose of these interviews is to systematically study variations in the learning environments within the center and to develop a complete picture of the various relationships within the classroom environments. The children's interview is made up of open-ended questions about the child's activities in the classroom, the teacher's activities, and some of the child's feelings about the social interactions in the classroom. The parent's interview (which makes up approximately one-half of the document) is aimed at a description and understanding of the parent's understanding of what is happening in the classroom, and the degree of parental involvement and support for the teacher. The teacher's interview focuses on classroom activities, diagnostic materials, student-peer interaction, classroom problems, teacher's goals, teacher's relationships with parents and community, knowledge of child development, and changes in the classroom over time.
