Using Research to Develop Successful Basic Skills Improvement Programs.
New Jersey State Dept. of Education, Trenton. Div. of School Programs.
Information on basic skills improvement programs is provided through a review of research findings concerned with the factors determining quality education. These factors fall into four key areas: (1) the classroom--use of time, classroom climate/control, teacher behaviors, student behavior, organization of instruction; (2) administration--administrators' priorities, expectations, behaviors, responsibilities; (3) school climate--goal orientation, positive relationships, administrative support, leadership, commitment to basic skills mastery, and (4) parent/community involvement--adult volunteer or parent participation in basic skills classes. Five basic success elements common to all four areas are identified: leadership, high expectations, willingness to assume responsibility, two-way communication/interaction, and goal-oriented systematic approaches. A summary of research and extensive bibliography are appended. (Author/GK)
