Procedures for the Preparation of Descriptions on Assessment of Exemplary Programs. Final Report.
Shanner, William M.
The chief purpose of this project was to prepare descriptions of exemplary programs in childhood education and reading having sufficient merit to be considered as visitation sites for other educators. The childhood education phase of this project was funded jointly by the Office of Economic Opportunity and the Office of Education. Its purpose was to select and document a variety of programs including Head Start, Follow Through, elementary and secondary programs in inner city schools, programs for Spanish-Speaking, and programs in basic skills and vocational areas for initial dissemination through the six Regional and National White House Conferences. In addition it was planned that OEO and OE could use the print and nonprint materials developed by the project for independent dissemination efforts. The exemplary reading programs phase of the project involved the field assessment of selected programs related to reading instruction and the verification of their effectiveness as demonstration sites for visits by personnel from other school districts. Program descriptions and leaflets were prepared for the 37 reading programs and 34 childhood education programs. Audio-visual documentation was prepared for 12 childhood education programs. This project was one in a series directed toward the wider dissemination of new and innovative practices in education, and was funded by the Office of Information Dissemination of OE. (Author/JM)
