Spotlight on New Learning Environments: A Journal of the Thomas Jefferson Center for Educational Design at the University of Virginia, i1-2 Win 1997-1998-Fall 1998
A two-issue volume presents articles describing innovative schools, classrooms, and alternative learning arrangements found in some of today's schools. Issue one contains three articles offering glimpses of an elementary school committed to the Core Knowledge curriculum of E. D. Hirsch, a renovated school devoted to early childhood learning programs, and a middle school experiential learning program. The three articles contained in the second issue highlight the Minnie Howard School in Alexandria, Virginia, a learning environment exclusively for ninth graders; "The Center for Communications," a high-tech learning environment in Henrico County (Virginia); and a case study of Gildersleeve Middle School in Newport News, Virginia that follows the school's creation from initial conception to final construction.
