School Development Program. Research Monograph.
Haynes, Norris M., Ed.
This book presents a compilation of papers generated by the research unit of the Comer School Development Program. The program operates from the basic theme that if school staff understand child development and how to organize and manage their school building as a social system, a climate that facilitates learning among the greatest number of students will exist. Papers and their authors are as follows: "The School Development Program: A Holistic Educational Approach" and "Empowering Schools: Process and Outcome Considerations" (Norris M. Haynes); "Implementation of the Yale School Development Program in Two Middle Schools: An Ethnographic Study" (Edward Joyner, et al.); "Evaluating School Development" (Norris M. Haynes, Khalipha Bility); "Teachers' Attributions for Student Performance: The Effects of Race, Experience, and School Context" (Valerie Maholmes, et al.); "Parent Involvement and School Improvement" (Keith Bruno, et al.); "Self-Concept as a Mediator of School Climate Effects" (Christine Emmons, et al.); "School Development Effect: Two Follow-Up Studies" (Norris M. Haynes); and "An Examination of the Psychosocial and School Achievement Characteristics Among SDP and Non-SDP Middle School Students" (Norris M. Haynes, et al.). References follow papers. (GLR)
