Administrative and Organizational Variables Affecting the Development of a Teacher-To-Teacher Network Program.
This paper examines the strategies involved in planning, organizing, developing, administering, evaluating, and providing materials for replication for a teacher-to-teacher network program. The data for this paper was collected as part of IMPACT II, a program designed to identify, support, document, and disseminate successful classroom-based programs developed by teachers. Critical variables such as program staff, consultants, screening committees, relationships to existing administrative structures, planning pre-operational steps, development of print and video material, formative evaluations, and public relations are reviewed. The findings provide a blueprint for setting up this type of program in a school district. (JD)
