This issue contains several articles synthesizing research on effective schools conducted by the Mid-continent Regional Educational Laboratory (McREL). Six "folios," or handouts, intended for dissemination to teachers, review the research and make specific suggestions for teachers on: (1) beginning the school year; (2) time management; (3) discipline; (4) expectations; (5) motivation; and (6) instruction. Another article, "Coaching--A Powerful Strategy for Improving Staff Development and Inservice Education," addresses a technique for increasing teacher-to-teacher collaboration and providing feedback for individual teachers about the effectiveness of their instructional methods. A detailed outline of the Effective School Program conducted by McREL is presented in the final article. (CB)
