Writing a Plan of Action for Achieving the Criteria of Excellence (A Laboratory Exercise).
New England Consortium for the Right to Read, Kingston, RI.
The Right to Read process at the level of the local education agency (LEA) goes through the following four phases: needs assessment, program planning, program implementation, and evaluation. This module is a culminating activity of the program planning phase. The second phase begins with a review of the Needs Assessment Report and ends with a written LEA Plan of Action. The module provides a laboratory experience requiring LEA directors to role play the work of a director and task force, moving from the identification of a priority need to a plan for meeting that need. The steps associated with phase two are as follows: (1) determine the areas of greatest need, (2) establish a priority of needs, (3) project a long-range plan, (4) analyze top priority needs, (5) rate for clarity and importance of forces, (6) brainstorm for action alternatives, (7) complete a Plan of Action Objectives Summary Chart, (8) complete a Plan of Action Detailed Planning Guide, (9) develop a time line, and (10) write the LEA Plan of Action. In this simulation, the LEA directors will follow one priority need through the ten planning steps. (TO)
