Planning requirements for small school facilities by J. Clark Davis( Book )

3 editions published in 1969 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The unique requirements of small school facilities, designed to handle multiple curricular functions within the same operational space, necessitate the creation of educational specifications tying the curriculum to that portion of the facility in which each curriculum component will be implemented. Thus, in planning the facility the major concern should be flexibility, to insure maximum utilization of space as well as complete expansion of curricular activities. Technological advances in design (such as open space plans) and construction meterials (such as flooring materials and acoustical treatments) have greatly facilitated the concept of flexible school plants. Advances in the control of illumination and thermal conditions now enable adequate planning for the school environment. Finally, small school libraries should utilize new library technologies for acquiring, storing, presenting, and retrieving materials, while providing a setting designed for individual instruction, one of the special advantages accruing to students enrolled in a small school system.

Improving Preparation of Professional Personnel for Vocational Educationin Metropolitan Areas. Institute Vi, Final Report by J. Clark Davis( Book )

1 edition published in 1971 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report presents the proceedings of a 4-day institute attended by 82 individuals representing university personnel, state department of education personnel, and local school district personnel. Conducted in response to critical problems in vocational teacher education, the institute focused on ways to locate and prepare adequate numbers of teachers to work with urban disadvantaged youth. The general plan of attack adopted by the institute was to have each participant, with the help of the 19 consultants, develop a teacher training model appropriate for his own situation. To this end, the format of the program consisted of a series of formal presentations, a question-and-answer panel, small group work sessions, and a variety of evaluations of the proceedings. A major conclusion advanced by this institute was that the teacher education model needs to stress that the teacher is both a manager of resources and an effective specialist in a prescribed area. Among the more than 15 formal presentations were: "The Need for Flexible Instructional Systems" by Howard McFarm, and "Desirable Characteristics of Vocational-Technical Teachers for Metropolitan Areas" by Duane Nielsen.

Work skill needs for the economic development of Arkansas, a report by J. Clark Davis( Book )

1 edition published in 1967 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

A growing population, migration from rural to urban areas, and an expanding manufacturing industry is forcing Arkansas to reappraise its basic skills offerings in vocational education. Since Arkansas is not in a position to provide massive increases in spending for vocational education, the state must decide if it is directing its expenditures to the most urgent needs, thereby raising its average income to the point where funds are available to provide an adequate comprehensive educational program. Statistical projections of population trends and employment requirements stress the increasing need for skilled labor. Conclusions emphasize that officials in Arkansas must re-examine their training expenditures to ensure that maximum benefit to the state is realized from presently limited funds. (dk)
