Plans for Follow Through Research and Development.
Schiller, Jeffry; And Others
Intended to develop new approaches to Follow Through services, the research plan described in this document is the first step in a collaborative effort of the National Institute of Education (NIE) and the Follow Through Division of the Department of Education. Prior to the delineation of the preliminary research strategy, background information concerning the Follow Through program and its evaluation is provided and the agreement between NIE and the Office of Elementary and Secondary Education is described. Two strands of the preliminary research strategy are specifically discussed. The first strand centers on the development of guidelines for funding a first wave of new approaches, to be tested beginning in the 1981-82 school year. The second strand focuses on a continual process of seeking out newer, less developed conceptions of Follow Through that could lead to implementation of a second wave and succeeding waves of pilot projects over 5, 10, and 20 years. Several uses for the new Follow Through research are pointed out, details of the planning process are discussed, and content areas of papers solicited in the first and second research strands are specified.
