KLAUSMEIER, HERBERT J.; AND OTHERS
PROJECT MODELS IS A COOPERATIVE PROJECT OF THE UNIVERSITY OF WISCONSIN R/D CENTER ON COGNITIVE LEARNING, LOCAL SCHOOL SYSTEMS, AND THE STATE EDUCATION DEPARTMENT. THE PROJECT'S AIM IS TO INCREASE THE EFFICIENCY OF STUDENT LEARNING AND TO FACILITATE RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT ACTIVITIES BY REORGANIZING THE STRUCTURE OF THE ELEMENTARY SCHOOL INTO RESEARCH AND INSTRUCTION UNITS, WHICH CONCENTRATE ON READING AND LANGUAGE ARTS, ARITHMETIC, AND SCIENCE. THESE UNITS, COMPOSED OF A UNIT TEACHER SPECIALIST, CERTIFIED TEACHERS, TEACHER AIDES, AND STUDENTS, REPLACE THE TRADITIONAL SELF-CONTAINED CLASSROOMS AND REDEFINE PERSONNEL ROLES AND RELATIONSHIPS. THE PAPER SPECIFICALLY DESCRIBES A PROTOTYPAL BUILDING ORGANIZATION AND INSTRUCTIONAL PROGRAM AND DISCUSSES THE TRAINING OF UNIT LEADERS AND THE ROLES OF THE BUILDING PRINCIPAL AND TEAM MEMBERS. IT ALSO OUTLINES THE REQUIREMENTS AND CONDITIONS FOR SUCH A "FACILITATIVE ENVIRONMENT." (NH)
