Lang, Gay, Ed.
This volume is a catalogue of exemplary educational programs and includes current descriptions of most programs described in previous editions as well as new programs approved for national dissemination since publication of the last edition in 1994. In particular the volume describes programs approved by the Joint Dissemination Review Panel and the Program Effectiveness Panel after examination of objective evidence of effectiveness submitted by the developer of the program. Active programs are divided into 15 sections and then arranged alphabetically by program title. The sections are: Preservice/Inservice Training; Organizational Reform; Dropout Prevention/Alternative Programs; Reading/Writing; Humanities; Mathematics; Science/Technology; Social Sciences; Health/Physical Education; Multidisciplinary/Cognitive Skills; Early Childhood/Parent Involvement; Special Education; Gifted/Talented; Special Populations: Adult/Higher/Migrant Education; Career/Vocational Education. Each description covers audience, description, evidence of effectiveness, requirements, costs, services, and the name, address and telephone number of a contact person. Educational Resources Information Center (ERIC) descriptors are assigned to all active programs for help in locating programs that focus on a given area or content. Includes an index of programs by state, an index of ERIC descriptors, an alphabetical index of programs by title, and a list of programs new to this edition. (JB)
