The Planning of Practice: Who Does What To Whom?
Bank, Adrianne
Because there appears to be a need for the facilitation of planning in elementary schools, the Center for the Study of Evaluation has established programs to provide for people in schools the knowledge and skills they need to do local program planning and evaluation. One of these programs is the self-instructional, self-contained Program Planning Kit. The kit does not contain program or evaluation plans, rather it provides step-by-step procedures for school staffs to use when planning educational programs and their evaluation. The kit contains materials for people filling the roles of planning coordinator, planning team member, and evaluation planner. Two major sources of difficulty in using the kit arose during its field testing: one was concerned with the field test situation; one had to do with the difficulties of doing program planning in the schools as they are currently organized. The former problem is readily solved, the latter is not. Only by rethinking how teachers' and principals' time can be most profitably spent and by making planning time available to them can the idea of program planning on the local level be given an adequate trial.
