Time and Resource Management for Small Schools.
Miller, Don, Ed.; Miller, Barbara, Ed.
Effective time and resource management is a necessity in all schools, particularly in small schools which make so many kinds of demands on each staff member. To successfully meet the challenge of providing a quality education in a small school, every available resource should be used, the staff and community surveyed to determine special skills or interests that can be shared with students, and communication lines developed and maintained among staff, students, administration and community. This document is a collection of materials by practitioners on managing time and resources. The first section, which is devoted to time management, presents papers on time management for administrators and teacher-managers, team management, time management in the elementary school, student scheduling, and independent study. The section on resource management deals with people management, community schools, group guide counseling, volunteer aides, facility development, planning, curriculum review and change, the relationship of the brain/mind and implications for education, and implementing Public Law 94-142. Also discussed are career education, media skills for K-12, music, using the newspaper as a resource, reading for slow learners, science fun, social studies as one of the basics, and writing (composition) improvement techniques. Most of the chapters in this document are edited from presentations made at a 1978 small schools summer institute at Willamette University in Salem, Oregon. (Author/DS)
