Far West Lab. for Educational Research and Development, San Francisco, CA.
This sourcebook lists over 50 items produced to aid in the design, development, implementation, and evaluation of educational innovation and change at the K-12 level. A group of cooperating Educational Laboratories and research and development centers have agreed to work together and with NIE, its R&D Utilization Contractors, and other clients, to provide for more effective awareness and use of products produced in recent years to improve educational practices of American schools. The products listed focus on providing training, procedural guidelines, or other aids that will foster more systematic, rational, and participative planning and decision-making about curriculum and instruction, including the modification of personal, social, and organizational activities that relate to the quality of educational programs and the climate of classroom and school environments. To facilitate selection of a particular product, three indexes are provided: (1) content--states of program change, focus of change, clusters of administrative functions, management and organizational skills, and linker/facilitator skills; (2) intended user groups; and (3) presentation formats.
