Secondary School Improvement Manual for Wisconsin Program for the Renewal and Improvement of Secondary Education.
Klausmeier, Herbert J.; Daresh, John C.
This manual was written for the Wisconsin Program for the Renewal and Improvement of Secondary Education (WRISE) to help schools develop their own capability for systematically improving their educative processes from year to year, using existing resources. The program, which has been tested and found effective, indicates general procedures, rather than prescribing programs and goals, and puts an emphasis on the individual student and on improvement at the local school level. The program's design incorporates three improvement strategies--individual instruction programming, individual education programming, and goal setting--and school organizational arrangements to aid in their implementation. After an introduction and overview, chapters 2-12 are devoted to components of the program, with each chapter containing a brief rationale; preplanning activities; a prototypic plan; and a synopsis of WRISE filmstrips, audiocassettes, and a textbook correlated with this manual. These chapters are: "Educational Programming for the Individual Student,""Instructional Programming for the Individual Student,""Curricular Arrangements,""Career Education and Experiential Learning,""Student Decision Making Arrangements,""Evaluation and Improvement Strategies,""Administrative Arrangements and Processes,""Organizing for Instruction and Advising,""Teacher-Advisor Programs,""Home-School-Community Relations," and "Support Arrangements." Chapter 13 discusses methods of evaluative research and development. Appendixes list design objectives and outline simulations. (DCS)
