This loose-leaf compendium includes three types of brief research summaries: "topical synthesis,""close-ups," and "snapshots." The single topical synthesis is entitled "School-Based Management" (Kathleen Cotton). Close-ups consist of brief definitions and essential research findings on the following topics: "Developing Empathy in Children and Youth" and "Nongraded Primary Education" (Kathleen Cotton). Four snapshots describe effective practices currently in place at various school districts throughout the country: "Building Positive Student Self-Concept" (Kathleen Cotton); "Achieving Success in Mathematics Through Innovative Programming" (Al Fitzpatrick); "Success for At-Risk Students Through Computer-Assisted Instruction" (Kathleen Cotton); and "Restructuring in a Multiethnic Environment" (Barbara K. Hernandez). Annotated bibliographies are appended to the topical synthesis and close-ups. (MLF)
