Teachers' Comments on Open Area and Conventional School Design. Australian Open Area Schools Project Technical Report No. 2.
Fitzpatrick, G. S.; Zani, T. L.
The comments contained in this paper are excerpts from intensive interviews with 27 teachers in open area primary schools, asking their recommendations for architectural changes in future open area schools and in traditional type schools to accommodate open education techniques. They were also asked, "Would you like to see this school more open or less open?" The respondents are not represented as a typical group of teachers, but were chosen for their extreme attitudes for and against teaching in open area schools. All respondents were teaching in western Australian open area schools of a post-1968 design. The appendix contains floor plans and text describing school design developments in the region to 1972.
