Ad Hoc Group to Advise on Innovative Programmes and Projects in Associated Schools (Unesco House, Paris, 21-25 July 1975). Report.
United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization, Paris (France).
Suggested innovations in the Unesco Associated School Program are described in this report. Fourteen member states participated in the conference in order to improve international understanding and school-community relationships by suggesting innovations in the organizational structure, curriculum content, and teaching methods of the schools. Two separate reports of the English-speaking countries and the French-speaking countries are included. Both reports provide a philosophical foundation, strategies for change, and possible projects. A final joint recommendation report of the two groups stresses the necessity for further faculty training, UNESCO establishment of information clearinghouses and curriculum development centers within the framework of existing institutions, key structural changes in selected Associated Schools which will act as models for further curriculum development, and more emphasis on innovative teaching units in the circular, International Understanding at School. Two brief working papers submitted to the conference entitled The School as Social Agent in the Community: Determinants of Effective Programs and Education and Community are also included.
