An Integrated Approach to Facilitating Student Achievement. Critical Issues in Student Achievement. Paper No. 1.
Southwest Educational Development Lab., Austin, TX.
The integrated approach to facilitating student achievement undertaken by the Southwest Educational Development Laboratory (SEDL) is described. The goal of SEDL's Programmatic Theme on Facilitating Student Achievement is to contribute to the improvement of programs and activities in the Southwestern Region for teaching reading, writing, and thinking skills by providing research and development-based information, training, and technical assistance concerning such efforts. Key objectives are to: (1) identify--via research and practice--strategies, approaches, and programs to enhance student achievement; (2) establish collaborations to build effective practice; (3) provide information, training, and technical assistance to help empower SEDL's collaborators to improve student achievement; and (4) disseminate information on knowledge and tools for improving student achievement. Among the key activities of the initiative will be three regional meetings to give training and assistance to SEDL collaborators. It is expected that a core of trained collaborators will be formed, to result in a more informed group of parent, educator, and community collaborators in the effort to improve student achievement. A series of papers on the issues of student achievement and a final report on the SEDL effort are planned. (SLD)
