How Schoolyards Influence Behaviour.
Cheskey, Edward
Green Teacher, n47 p11-14 Apr-May 1996
Discusses the evidence and research that seems to indicate that the design of the typical schoolyard emphasizes surveillance and team sports, exacerbates discipline problems, and promotes aggressive behavior. Describes environmental features that most contribute to our physical and mental well-being, such as open water, secluded hiding places, mysterious passageways, vegetation complexity, and structural diversity.
