Three types of research summaries comprise this loose-leaf compendium: "topical synthesis,""closeups," and "snapshots." The single topical synthesis is entitled "Fostering Intercultural Harmony in Schools" (Kathleen Cotton). Closeups consist of brief definitions and essential research findings on the following topics: "Developing Employability Skills" (Kathleen Cotton) and "Integrated Curriculum" (Kathy Lake). Four snapshots describe effective practices currently in place at various school districts throughout the country: "Implementing a Nongraded Elementary Program" (Kathleen Cotton); "School Improvement through Teacher Decision Making" (Al Fitzpatrick); "Restructuring at the Secondary Level: Grouping, Instruction, and Assessment" (Nancey Olson); and "Rejuvenating a Multiethnic Urban School" (Angela Wilson and Kathleen Cotton). Annotated bibliographies are appended to the topical syntheses and closeups. (MLF)
