Educational Programs That Work. A Resource of Educational Innovations Developed by Local School Districts and Approved by an Evaluation Panel in the Education Division of the Department of Health, Education and Welfare.
Far West Lab. for Educational Research and Development, San Francisco, CA.
This sourcebook provides brief descriptions of a number of innovative programs that have been approved for dissemination by the Joint Dissemination Review Panel within the Education Division of the Department of Health, Education, and Welfare. The first section presents an array of programs that were being supported as Demonstration Projects during the 1975-76 school year by the U.S. Office of Education. The second section presents shorter descriptions of projects that are also approved for diffusion but, in view of scarce resources, could not be funded during the particular school year. The back of the book contains a list of state facilitators, with names, addresses, and phone numbers. Each facilitator serves as a matchmaker within that state to assure that local education agencies obtain information about and access to those validated innovations that fit identified needs of particular schools, regardless of where in the nation the original program happened to have been launched. The demonstration projects deal with a wide variety of areas: alternative/secondary education, early childhood and parent readiness, the environment, reading/language/mathematics, specialized curriculum/special interests, special education, and training/organizational arrangements.
