Innovative Education Practices. Volume 2.

In this, the second volume of "Innovative Educational Practices," 84 outstanding projects funded under Title Three of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act are presented. Title III provides funds to local schools for the purpose of stimulating innovation and change in educational practices. The projects deal with varied educational problems. For example, one trains itinerant tutors for teaching learning disabled children while another rescues teenaged parolees from penal institutions. Yet all have a common characteristic. They are successful--successful in terms of doing what they said they would do for their target population, whether students, teachers, administrators, aides or parents. The projects have also produced credible evidence of their cost and exportability. In other words, another school district or state can approach the project with confidence that the data reported by the project in terms of its cost, effectiveness and exportability factors were verified in mid-1974 by a validation team from another state. The team uses an especially prepared handbook developed by a state and national advisory council members and the staff of state and federal education agencies to validate project activities. The ultimate aim is to allow a district with an unresolved educational need to be able to pick and choose from already proven successful practices. (Author/JM)
