Reading Research Utilization Project, Interim Report.
District of Columbia Public Schools, Washington, DC. Research Information Center.
The focus of the study is upon the process of translating research into educational practice at the instructional level in the D.C. Public School System. The project will meld central research capabilities and resources of the system with the needs of key field personnel-teachers, principals, librarians, reading specialists-in 16 target elementary schools. Emphasis in the initial project will be in the area of reading. To effect the link between resources and practitioner, a liaison researcher, serving as an active communication link or interface, will be employed. A survey instrument will be designed to identify and define specific research problems and needs related to reading in the target schools. Information from an established data bank on teachers, pupils, schools and programs for the same schools will supplement survey findings. One goal of the project is to make target personnel more knowledgeable about research findings and how these findings may be utilized in their day to day teaching and supportive activities. A second goal is to provide information to local schools for the development of programs. At present, these local schools lack information resources and thus experience difficulty and frustration in establishing these programs. (Author)
