Architecture: A Design for Education.
Dykstra, Gretchen; Stroer, Rosemary, Ed.
This booklet contains six case studies describing creative and successful teachers who have demonstrated that teaching architecture and urban design from many perspectives makes a great deal of educational sense. The teachers represent a variety of disciplines and teach at various levels, but all recognize the positive possibilities inherent in the problem-solving aspects of architecture. They have used architecture for many reasons including: as a vehicle for interdisciplinary teaching, for exploring a specific subject, and for drawing school and community together in a joint concern for the environment. The approaches highlighted are: (1) an elementary, interdisciplinary curriculum based on urban studies, (2) a high school design course, (3) an upper elementary school waterfront project, (4) a building project by one special student, (5) a junior high school study of three-dimensional forms and structures, and (6) an architect-in-residence program.
