Educational Programs That Work: A Resource of Exemplary Educational Programs Developed by Local School Districts and Approved by the Joint Dissemination Review Panel in the Education Division of the Department of Health, Education and Welfare. Fifth Edition.
Far West Lab. for Educational Research and Development, San Francisco, CA.
This catalog is intended to make successful programs and practices available so that interested school districts may adapt and install their key elements. All programs were approved by program offices within their funding agencies and often by state education agencies. All were then carefully scrutinized for quality by the Joint Dissemination Review Panel of the Department of Health, Education, and Welfare. All programs demonstrated convincing evidence of effectiveness. Many programs are products of the National Diffusion Network. Each entry includes a description of the project, target audience, results, implementation requirements, financial requirements, services available, and contact person. The programs discussed here include those dealing with alternative schools; bilingual and migrant education; career or vocational education; early childhood/parent readiness/parent involvement; experimental education; organizational arrangements/training/administration; reading/language arts/math; special education/learning disabilities; arts, communications skills, and technology; and health, human behavior, physical education, and multiple talent development. This annual catalog includes up-to-date information on all programs that were described in previous editions and over 20 additional programs. The appendix offers several listings of state coordinators of federally funded programs who may be able to assist local schools through technical assistance with new educational practices.
