Educational Programs That Work. A Resource of Exemplary Educational Programs Approved by the Joint Dissemination Review Panel, Department of Education. Seventh Edition.
Far West Lab. for Educational Research and Development, San Francisco, CA.
This document, the annual National Diffusion Network (NDN) catalog of exemplary educational programs, contains current descriptions of all the programs described in previous editions together with descriptions of 14 new programs approved for national dissemination since publication of the sixth edition in 1979. The term "exemplary" is conferred only after a project has been reviewed by the Department of Education's Joint Dissemination Review Panel. This panel examines the evidence for cognitive and affective gains presented by each project. Positive endorsement of a project's claims of effectiveness by a majority of the attending panel members constitutes approval, and a date of validation is assigned. A list of NDN facilitators is included. Facilitators provide the link between NDN Developer/Demonstrator Projects and can help educators identify suitable NDN programs and assist with adoptions, training, and operation. Approximately 120 of the projects described in this catalog are developer/demonstrators. The type of dissemination funding that a project receives is identified in the description of the project. Indexes identify the exemplary programs by the state in which they are located, by sectional cross-references, by ERIC descriptors, and alphabetically by project name. (Author/IRT)
