The Redesign of Education, Volume 1: A Collection of Papers Concerned with Comprehensive Educational Reform.
Far West Lab. for Educational Research and Development, San Francisco, CA.
The view that fundamental changes in the educational system are necessary for successful restructuring is reflected in this collection of papers. The first five papers set the context for restructuring design by presenting rationales, models, and definitions. The next three papers focus on educational design processes, and the following two papers provide specific descriptions of different educational systems. The final paper develops a new design for educational reform. The contents are as follows: "A Beginning Look at the What and How of Restructuring," by Glen Harvey and David P. Crandall; "Toward a Definition of Restructuring," by Jill A. Mirman; "Design as the Missing Piece in Education," by C. L. Hutchins; "An Outside-In Approach to Design Inquiry in Education," by Bela H. Banathy; "Resdesigning Education," by C. L. Hutchins; "A Generic Model of Organizational Inquiry for Educational Design," by C. Lynn Jenks; "Configuring the Educational System for a Shared Future: Collaborative Vision, Action, Reflection," by Beverly L. Anderson and Pat L. Cox; "A Process Analysis and Design Methodology for the Improvement of Organizational Effectiveness in Schools," by Stephen R. Mills; "The Search for Meaningful Reform: A Third-Wave Educational System," by Charles M. Reigeluth; "Sketches in the Redesign of the Local School District," by Ray Budde; and "Educational Restructuring: An Early Look," by C. Lynn Jenks and Thomas A. Shaw. (LMI)
