Creative Educational Leadership (A Partial Evaluation).
Kralik, Daniel J.
The purpose of the project was to demonstrate the role and function of the new intermediate school district and to show that it could creatively initiate needed changes in education within three years in Pierce County, Washington. Three specific projects are delineated: (1) guidance training for teachers and administrators; (2) development of local pupil personnel programs; and (3) inservice training for practicing counselors. The last two were discontinued after one year. Their goals and procedures are briefly presented. Reasons for their failure are also discussed: (1) lack of behavioral objectives; and (2) too unstructured a program. The surviving project, Guidance In the Classroom, is fully described in terms of its goals, objectives, procedures, and methods. Its results are comprehensively discussed. Primary among these is the identification of five instructional strategies which produce positive results: (1) leading discussions; (2) behavioral objectives; (3) precision teaching; (4) student tutors; and (5) evaluating students. All are thoroughly elaborated in the appendix. A summary of the total project, successes and failures, concludes the report. The research reported herein was funded under Title III of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act. (TL)
