Economically Functional Considerations for an Interactional House Plan, Senior High School (Task Group Report).
Paul, Warren I.
A task group was charged with remodeling an existing connected old building-new building complex to make it feasible for a house-oriented senior high school educational program. Constraints to be resolved were keeping costs low, maintaining departmental proximity while encouraging interdisciplinary activities, providing for small groups, and arranging for even utilization of facilities. The group decided on an interactional houseplan that organized academic disciplines by department and the students into heterogeneous groups each with 25 students and one faculty member. Physical modifications to meet the needs of this reorganization are itemized. Background information contained in the report includes school floor plans, community demographic characteristics, educational philosophy and objectives, curriculum program, extracurricular activities, enrollment projections, specifications for teaching and learning areas, and comparisons between the new middle school and the present high school.
