Implementing and Strengthening an EIC Program in Your School: A Self-Evaluation Guide.
Lieberman, Gerald A., Comp.; Hoody, Linda L., Comp.
This guide assists educators in the process of implementing or strengthening a using the Environment as an Integrating Context for learning (EIC) program in their school. This self-evaluation guide provides teachers and principals with an instrument that they can use to assess the current status of their programs in relation to the leadership that characterizes a strong EIC program. This document begins with a Summary of the Major Educational Components for EIC Programs. Selection of these components was based on research into the pedagogies common to schools that successfully implement EIC. The body of the guide presents self-evaluation rubrics organized around each of the educational components. Each component is described on a rubric sheet that defines important terminology and explains other significant aspects of EIC. The rubric sheets delineate several measurable attributes that educators can use to help determine the progress of their program. The Self-Evaluation Summary for EIC Implementation allows educators to gather information from the individual rubric sheets. (SAH)
