New Designs for the Comprehensive High School. Volume I.
Copa, George H.; Pease, Virginia H.
Intended to influence school districts that have the opportunity to build new schools, this document provides new designs for comprehensive high schools that would overcome the mismatch between school and life, the inequity of educational outcomes, and the lack of organizational effectiveness that plague many contemporary high schools. The designs were developed by teachers, administrators, support staff, state education office staff, teacher educators, and policy makers. Following an introduction, the document contains the following sections: Learning Signature; Learner Outcomes; Learning Process; Learning Oganization; Learning Decision Making; Learning Partnerships; Learning Staff; Learning Technology; Learning Environment; Learning Costs; a summary of unique contributions, lessons learned, and recommended next steps. A list of 81 references concludes this volume. (CML)
