Summary

This document discusses the problems and prospects of developing an open classroom based on an actual experience. The document is divided into sections of preservice concerns and in-service development. The former treats such topics as open education readings; school visitations, needed facilities; and planning, organizing, implementing, and evaluating the open education process. Under in-service development, the following topics are discussed: preplanning activities (which include communicating the idea itself to school administrators, teachers, parents, and concerned citizens); organizational activities; the implementation sequence; and prospects for the future. In the organizational activities section, four organizational tasks are defined: organizing materials into "learning centers," organizing the structural arrangement of sequentially introducing children to a more flexible and open classroom, organizing the gradual movement of children from a large-group structure to a more open structure, and organizing a setting for keeping school staff and community people informed on the success of the entire endeavor. In the particular experience of the authors, implementation problems took place in three basic areas: teacher behaviors, child behaviors, and curriculum modification. (JA)
