A Practitioner's Sourcebook: Effective Educational Practices in Chapter 1 Programs in Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont.
Chapter I programs are based on locally identified needs, and projects are developed and operated at the local level to meet each district's needs. A majority of Chapter I programs stress language and math skills, however, there are a wide variety of instructional approaches. This source book relates educational practice to research in school effectiveness and presents successful educational practices. It is used in training for Chapter I program staff throughout Maine, New Hampshire, and Vermont. Fifteen research indicators are listed, with explanations and summaries of the separate approaches taken by various school districts. The 15 research indicators are organized under 4 indicators: (1) communicating high expectations about Chapter 1 students to Chapter 1 students, their teachers, and parents; (2) planning instruction, managing instruction environment, and using appropriate methods and materials; (3) sharing goals and progress, regularly monitoring and providing feedback to students, and involving parents in students' learning; and (4) providing leadership in staff development, supervision, and program evaluation. A "Quick Scan Reference Guide" correlates the 134 descriptions of teaching practices with topical categories, grade levels, and academic subjects. Examples of program forms and student work are included. The book also contains a chart of contributing schools/systems and teachers, maps of contributor locations, an index, and a list of 24 research references. (ALL)
