A Paradigm for Teacher Involvement in the Development of Educational Specifications.
In order to accommodate both the formal and informal curriculum and to best satisfy the philosophy of a school district, the development of educational specifications is prerequisite to the process of designing a school facility. Educational specifications consist of a series of interrelated statements that describe the physical requirements of the program which are later translated into the physical plant. Included within these specifications are clear and precise descriptions of learning activities to be housed in the school, their spacial requirements, special features of the areas to be included, and the relationship of these learning areas to one another. This paper presents a description of a series of workshps designed to acquaint teachers with the paradigms of educational specifications with the aim of preparing them to participate with an architect in designing a school facility.
