The Advisory and Learning Exchange, the Sharing of Knowledge and Concerns. Profiles of Promise 14.
Markowitz, Alan; Haley, Frances
The Advisory and Learning Exchange (ALE), located in Washington, D. C., is sometimes classified as a teaching center but also functions as an organization with a helping or facilitating role for individuals, groups, and schools. In pursuing the objectives of encouraging, organizing, connecting, and facilitating learning and growth experiences for those in the Washington community, the Advisory has identified a series of program strategies which include workshops, support and assistance of individual and whole schools, operation and maintenance of a material and information center, and liason and influence with District of Columbia Public Schools and other organizations. The primary strategy for bringing people with common interests and concerns together is the conducting of workshops and seminars which range in topic from introducing new curriculum materials to constructing classroom materials for early childhood education. Formal evaluation has just begun and future plans are focused toward increasing the program to meet the needs of an ever expanding audience. (Author/KSM)
