Study Halls: An Educational Wasteland to an Educational Mecca.
Long, Lynette
Most study halls in most high schools are not arenas of constructive leisure, but rather, exercises in creative discipline for the teachers. Students practice wasting, not using, time. One high school in Illinois, however, implemented a successful study hall plan. The traditional study hall was divided into three areas defined by the arrangement of the furniture: the quiet area, the activity area, and the conversation area. Students responded positively to the new program. Attendance increased, and learning began to take place. (Author)
