A Guidebook to Selected Projects in Design Education.
Bell, Denise A.; Mirochnik, Elijuh
Design education includes those projects or activities where children are actively engaged in a process of making and doing with architecture, landscape architecture, urban design, and/or city planning as a context for the learning activity. The goal of such experiences is to sensitize children to their surroundings and better inform them about the process of design that ultimately affects the physical, social, and economic conditions of their community. This directory lists selected design education projects that have been grouped into the following categories: (1) teacher generated/teacher taught (11 projects); (2) teacher initiated/designer or design educator taught (28 projects); (3) curriculum through teacher/designer collaboration (22 projects); (4) community as classroom (15 projects); (5) teacher-training workshops (9 projects); (6) summer programs (4 projects); and (7) public information (17 projects). Each category is subdivided into Massachusetts and national projects, and brief descriptions are given of all projects. Following the project descriptions is a 32-page resource list of individuals and organizations able to offer technical assistance, program methodology, and materials to educators. These are arranged in the following categories: (1) heritage education organizations, (2) clearinghouses, (3) professional associations, (4) community organizations, (5) higher education institutions, (6) foundations, (7) design education consultants, (8) publications, and (9) educational resources. A 48-item bibliography is included. (JB)
