Mid-Continent Regional Educational Lab., Aurora, CO.; Mid-Continent Regional Educational Lab., Inc., Kansas City, MO.
The Mid-continent Regional Educational Laboratory's (McREL's) Mid-continent Alliance focuses on technical areas that must be considered by every school system that is serious about reform. This document contains four articles that focus on four important pieces of the school-reform puzzle: (1) standards and benchmarks for learning; (2) learner-centered principles, a foundation for the redesign of instruction and school reform; (3) indicator systems, accountability, and classroom assessment; and (4) a model for an integrated, interdisciplinary curriculum. Policymakers and practitioners must simultaneously consider each of these areas when making decisions. Three tables and one figure are included. (LMI)
