The Responsive Education Program for Children and Adult Learners.
Cheever, Julia, Ed.
This book is intended for educators who want to know more about the theoretical foundations of the Responsive Education Program (REP), how the program works, how successful it has been, and what is required for implementation. The book also may be useful to instructors and staff developers who are training people to work in the field of education. Chapters one through five provide an overview and theoretical background through discussions of "responsiveness," the general rationale of the program, and the rationale for and implementation of the goals of the program. Chapters six and seven provide discussions of learner objectives and principles and program teaching guidelines. Emphasis is placed on the integration of the learning conditions that support the program goals. Chapters eight through ten present applications of the responsive model through a position paper on language and reading, descriptions of the classroom, and description of staff development. Chapters eleven and twelve provide discussions of evaluation and implementation. Appendix A is a list of sites in which the program can be observed in operation. (Author/RH)
