A Celebration of Teaching! IMPACT II.
Ohio State Dept. of Education, Columbus.
This report is a compendium of IMPACT II profiles describing innovative curricula developed by elementary school and secondary school teachers in the Akron, Canton, Cleveland, Columbus, Dayton, Toledo, and Youngstown school districts in Ohio. IMPACT II is a program for professional development of teachers that assists educational reform by providing innovative teacher-developed curriculum ideas, teacher-to-teacher networks, professional development, teacher recognition, and discretionary funds for teachers. IMPACT II recognizes teachers for creativity in curriculum and instruction, and enables them to share professionally with each other and to serve as teacher leaders. IMPACT II disseminators are teachers who have developed exemplary curriculum ideas; adapters are teachers who adapt curricula. The profiles describe 150 innovative programs. Each profile presents new ways of thinking about teaching and alternative methods of engaging students in learning. Teacher-developed curriculum ideas are provided for the elementary school and secondary school levels in the following areas: (1) art/health/home economics; (2) foreign language; (3) language arts; (4) mathematics; (5) science; (6) social studies; and (7) special education.
