Concordia Papers. All for One: Inclusion in the Learning Environment [and] Common Ground [and] E Pluribus Unum: The New American Community School [and] The Lincoln Plan.
Four papers are presented on learning environments, accommodating special needs students, and educational facility design and construction trends towards integration and inclusion. The first paper, "All for One: Inclusion in the Learning Environment," addresses the change from a tendency of educational facility design and construction to exclude special needs students to more inclusive and community-friendly facilities today. The second paper, "Common Ground," explores educational facility design that is now responding to the evolving curriculum of interdisciplinary, hands-on, and integrated learning. The third paper, "E Pluribus Unum: The New American Community School," explores the emerging trend towards integration and inclusion in educational facility design. The fourth paper, "The Lincoln Plan," examines the designing of educational facilities as thematic learning centers, each with an integrated curriculum covering all of the necessary core content and with its own interdisciplinary team for implementation.
