Addresses whether schools and classroom spaces enhance or detract from the learning process and provides school assessment guidelines for communities anticipating the expansion of existing schools or the construction of new ones. It provides survey and discussion tools that encourage stakeholders to discover and reflect upon the physical features of school buildings. What works and what does not work in K-12 school buildings is identified. Building surveys focus on the assessment of existing school facilities, while photo questionnaires present alternative spatial arrangements for group discussions. Small group discussions are suggested as an effective method for creating a productive dialogue allowing people to consider many different viewpoints. (52 pages / 2001)
