Pennsylvania's Exemplary Special Projects 1976-1990 as Reviewed and Rated by the FOCUS Panel.
This document reviews 117 special projects selected by a panel of literacy experts using three criteria: effectiveness, innovation, and adaptability. Special projects are grouped by the area, or major thrust, of the project and product. The nine areas are as follows: counseling, curriculum, English as a Second Language, management, promotion, special populations, staff development, technology, and workplace. Each section or area begins with a listing of the project titles, in alphabetical order, with the year in which the project was completed and page number. The format for each special project is: title, area, year in which the project was completed, issue (FOCUS issue in which the project was reviewed), AE number (request number for use when borrowing the project from Pennsylvania's AdvancE Clearinghouse), project director, address, telephone, audience (administrators, teachers/tutors, counselors, learners), subarea (additional product interest beyond that identified in area), components (instructor's guide, final report, media component, learner workbook, curriculum), panel review (year and rating of good, superior, or excellent for effectiveness, innovation, and adaptability), cost (federal funding), and comments (brief description of project's goals, products, and/or results). An index lists projects alphabetically by title; area and page are indicated. (YLB)
