Critical Competitors. Evaluation of the Bay Area Writing Project. Technical Report.
Thomas, Susan; Watson, Patti
Prepared as part of the evaluation of the Bay Area Writing Project (BAWP), this report compares BAWP to its "critical competitors" (other inservice teacher programs and programs for improving student writing). The BAWP model and ten other program descriptions are presented in identical descriptive formats. Three types of competitors are described, including composition inservice programs, other inservice programs, and composition programs. The descriptive format used to make comparisons offers information on each program's scope, content, process, the monitoring of program implementation, and the reported effectiveness of the program (impact on participants/students, long term followup materials, and projected costs). The concluding section of the report provides comparisons of the programs and recommendations for changes and improvements in the BAWP model. (RL)
