Consultation and Dissemination Research Strategy: 1974. Technical Report #22.
Tharp, Roland G.; Gallimore, Ronald
This brief report outlines several of the Kamehameha Early Education Program (KEEP) dissemination formats completed, underway, or planned. One of these, the workshop format, was tested in a training program of several days conducted at KEEP. The workshop was designed to teach teachers to use social reinforcement techniques to increase student motivation. A second dissemination format tested was intense long-distance consultation. This type of consultation involved visits by two KEEP staff members to the target school for periods of 2 to 3 days at regular intervals and three return visits by participating teachers from the target school for intensive work in the KEEP demonstration classroom. The resident-teacher format was the third dissemination format examined. This approach involved the development of a one-semester teacher training program for use with public school teachers who were brought into the KEEP demonstration school as full-time teaching staff. A final dissemination format examined was university instruction. In this approach, a brief but intense work-training session in the KEEP demonstration school was included as part of a university credit course for teachers.(JMB)
