Innovation Without Renovation in the Elementary School.
Morton, Richard J.; Morton, Jane
This book discusses possible approaches to initiating innovative educational programs and open education within the physical limitations of a traditional elementary school building. The authors stress their view that innovative education is more a product of innovative teachers and administrators than of building design. The book is aimed primarily at educators who want to move away from the constraints of traditional elementary education but are unsure how to go about it. Major topics discussed include utilization of existing space for new programs, staff preparation for change, parent and community involvement, individualization of the curriculum, staffing patterns, use of volunteers and student assistants, flexible scheduling, expansion of library services, outdoor education, budgeting, establishment of a counseling program, and instruments for program development and evaluation.
