RMC Research Corp., Denver, CO.; Chapter 1 Technical Assistance Center, Denver, CO. Region E.
This publication is a guide with the materials necessary for leading a workshop session on a method for Chapter 1 program improvement that involves teachers and administrators. The "For the Children" approach to program improvement offers a plan for bringing together the people who are responsible for implementing the program that has been proven to be effective in bringing about improved student performance. Lists of the transparencies and handouts used in the workshop as well as an outline of the 1- to 2-day workshop are provided. The actual guide to the workshop covers the following areas: (1) workshop goals; (2) overview/introduction; (3) phases one and two involving gathering information, disaggregation, and skills for gathering and interpreting subjective information; (4) developing a school profile involving targeting areas for improvement and setting goals; and (5) debriefing including discussion and session evaluation. Throughout the guide, graphics indicate when to use the 37 specially designed transparencies and 10 handouts. (JB)
