Building Capacity To Support Student Achievement From the State Department to the Classroom and the Classroom to the State Department.
Calhoun, Emily F.
Staff members at the Iowa Department of Education are involved in a 3-year initiative (1998-2001) to strengthen school improvement efforts at the local school, district, and intermediate service agency levels. Papers presented at a symposium of the American Educational Research Association annual meeting describe the multiple purposes and design of this initiative and how it is being studied. This paper describes the four symposium papers: (1) "Rationale and Design for Every Child Reads: A Statewide (Iowa) Action Research Initiative on Literacy and School Improvement" (Nina Carran); (2) "The Professional Development Orientation of Every Child Reads" (Chris Rinner); (3) "Building Knowledge, Skill, and Capacity for Internal and External Facilitation and Leadership" (Assessment Consultant, Iowa Department of Education); and (4) "The Action Research Orientation of Every Child Reads" (Emily Calhoun). (Contains 11 references.) (SLD)
