Theory Into Practice: Implementing Educational Programs.
Meyer, Linda A.
Based on the author's experiences with the Direct Instruction Follow Through Project at the University of Oregon and with the PLATO Corrections Project at the University of Illinois, this "how to do it" book articulates the conditions and procedures believed critical in implementing educational programs from the planning and theoretical stages into classroom practice. Models from the Direct Instruction Follow Through Project and from the PLATO Project are presented several times throughout the book to help train persons for field management of new eduational programs being introduced into institutions. Chapters deal with communication, management conditions, memoranda of agreement between the site and the sponsor, job descriptions, formative evaluation/monitoring, summative evaluation, report writing, and putting theory into practice.
