Twenty-four local projects which are intended to serve as sources of ideas for professional group action are described in this pamphlet. The projects are reported within the framework of four areas of improving teaching. Under "professional development" projects are portrayed concerning the use of student tutors and the improvement of school-community relations by the use of retreats, an evaluation study of a school system, negotiation agreements between teachers and administrators, and an education workshop. Described under "instruction" are projects which inform the community in the everyday value of education (for example, an antismoking campaign and adult education for the disadvantaged), concern the incorporation of innovations into the present system (such as a building erected especially to house a nongraded school), and which improve teaching through an anthology of human relations ideas and a teach-in (intensive exposure to educational process with community involvement). Under "public relations" are projects to increase community understanding of education, such as a teacher exchange program, along with presentations of instructional methods and materials (e.g., a sample classroom located in a shopping center) and campaigns to increase communication and interest. Projects aimed at building teacher interest, unity, knowledge, political activity, and adjustment are depicted under "direct services to members." (SM)
