USMES Team Study: Using Resource Teams to Disseminate and Implement USMES.
Arbetter, Carolyn Clinton; And Others
This study is one of three designed to evaluate the effectiveness of the Unified Science and Mathematics for Elementary Schools (USMES) program. The team study examined the resource team program and the factors that influenced how effective selected teams were in disseminating and implementing USMES in their areas. This report begins with a discussion of the goals of the study, a description of the resource team program itself, and a summary of the methods used to gather information about the teams. Part two consists of case studies of the fifteen teams, with emphasis on the factors influencing their growth and survival. Part three discusses the major issues that emerge across teams. Part four looks at how USMES is implemented by team-trained teachers. (Author/BB)
