The Form of Reform: School Facility Design Implications for California Educational Reform.
Ong, Faye, Ed.
The California Department of Education convened a task force to determine how the learning environment can be shaped to support statewide educational reforms designed to make California schools places of community pride that also help students excel. This two-part report outlines design implications common to all grade levels, as well as those specific to certain grade levels, and identifies design implication concepts derived from each of the task force's reform reports. It lists educational concepts with methodologies and design implications specific to each of the California grade-level reform papers: "Caught in the Middle" (1987); "Here They Come: Ready or Not" (1988); "It's Elementary" (1992); and "Second to None" (1992). Also included are descriptions of several award-winning schools whose master planning has embraced educational reform in their design. (Contains 87 references.) (GR)
