SPACES AND TRACES OF THE CAMPUS
University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee

Methods of assessment included design review and inventory, tracking people in places, interviews to determine viewpoints and visions. Design recommendations are made based on this information.

EDUCATIONAL FACILITIES: THE IMPACT AND ROLE OF THE PHYSICAL ENVIRONMENT OF THE SCHOOLS ON TEACHING AND LEARNING EDUCATIONAL OUTCOMES
Jeffery A.Lackney

The quality of the educational environment is rapidly diminishing due to the plethora of social and economic problems plaguing urban communities. Due to this crisis, the physical infrastructure of school systems is being virtually ignored. The author addresses the impact of physical infrastructures on education and the impact of the school building on student achievement. Finally, the author synthesizes and builds upon existing models developed within several disciplines to direct further applied research on educational environments.
