Participants in a National Seminar on the Diffusion of New Instructional Materials and Practices included scientists and educators in the natural and social sciences and mathematics from universities, curriculum projects, and school districts throughout the United States. This document is the first of a series of working papers which were developed during the conference. Two questions are considered: Are there characteristics of particular subject matters that make products which are based on them more or less likely to be adopted? Are there characteristics of developers that tend to inhibit or encourage use of their ideas and products. Responses of conference participants to these queries are collected and published in this paper. Related documents are SO 006 339 through SO 006 344. (SHM)
