THE CENTER FOR COORDINATED EDUCATION AND EDUCATIONAL CHANGE.
RUBIN, LOUIS J.
THE CENTER FOR COORDINATED EDUCATION SEEKS, THROUGH PRACTICAL EXPERIMENTS IN SCHOOLS, TO LEARN MORE OF NEEDED IMPROVEMENTS AND THE PROCESSES FOR THEIR REALIZATION. DURING THE 1967-1968 PERIOD, THE CENTER IS SPONSORING THREE SERIES OF PROJECTS. (1) TESTING OF A NEW APPROACH TO THE PROFESSIONAL GROWTH OF PRINCIPALS AND TEACHERS WILL INVOLVE 10 SCHOOLS AND THEIR TOTAL INSTRUCTIONAL STAFFS, WILL UTILIZE THE PRINCIPAL AS INSTRUCTIONAL LEADER, AND WILL INTEGRATE MAJOR COMPONENTS OF CLASSROOM INSTRUCTION. THESE TRAINING PROGRAMS WILL ATTEMPT TO ACHIEVE GREATER CONSISTENCY IN THE SCHOOLS' INSTRUCTIONAL PROGRAMS BY REDUCING CONFLICTING TEACHING GOALS AND BY INCREASING CONGRUENCE OF TEACHING OBJECTIVES AND METHODS. (2) PROJECTS ON THE DIAGNOSIS OF SCHOOL WEAKNESSES WILL REQUIRE THE CORPORATE SCHOOL STAFF TO COMPARE ACTUAL STUDENT ACHIEVEMENT OF LEARNING OBJECTIVES WITH ANTICIPATED ACHIEVEMENT. THE DIAGNOSTIC PROCEDURE WILL CONSIST OF CLARIFICATION AND APPRAISAL OF PURPOSE, EVALUATION OF INSTRUCTION IN TERMS OF STATED OBJECTIVES, DIAGNOSIS OF FACTORS ACCOUNTING FOR DIFFERENCES BETWEEN ANTICIPATED AND ACTUAL TEACHING OUTCOMES, AND PLANNING IMPROVEMENTS. (3) ELEVEN PROJECTS ON THE UTILIZATION OF INNOVATIONS ARE DESIGNED TO INCREASE KNOWLEDGE ABOUT THE RATIONAL USE OF INNOVATIONS. PREPARATION FOR INSTALLATION OF AN INNOVATION WILL INCLUDE SPECIFICATION OF EXPECTED BENEFITS, INNOVATION APPROPRIATENESS, STAFF RETRAINING, REQUIRED MATERIALS, AND EFFECTS. THIS PAPER WAS PREPARED FOR DELIVERY TO THE AMERICAN EDUCATIONAL RESEARCH ASSOCIATION (CHICAGO, ILLINOIS, FEBRUARY 8-10, 1968). (HM)
