Improving our schools : thirty-three studies that inform local action by Marilyn Clayton Felt( Book )

3 editions published in 1985 in English and held by 410 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose of this book, a comprehensive summary of the educational studies of the late 1970s and early 1980s, is to make the thinking and conclusions of the studies conveniently accessible to those responsible for education at the local level. To that end, the book deals with 33 studies containing substantial information and advice for local action. Chapter One presents excerpts from the studies that convey the tone and the subject of current concerns about the outcomes of American education. Some cross-cultural comparisons are included. Chapter Two discusses what the different studies see as the causes of the nation's educational problems, focusing on those factors that the education community has some chance of influencing. Chapter Three summarizes the findings or recommendations of each study in turn. Chapter Four compares the recommendations of the full range of studies and identifies and discusses 11 areas of agreement (what should be taught, teaching methods, media use, evaluation and guidance, special student populations, school organization and school climate, teachers, principals, the school plant, institutions and individuals outside the school system, the improvement process). Chapter Five provides information and questions designed to help local educators (and particularly principals) find a starting point for their own improvement efforts. (Rdn)

Mathematical connections : a companion for teachers and others by Albert Cuoco( Book )

2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 275 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is about some of the topics that form the foundations for high school mathematics. It focuses on a closely-knit collection of ideas that are at the intersection of algebra, arithmetic, combinatorics, geometry, and calculus. Most of the ideas are classical: methods for fitting polynomial functions to data, for summing powers of integers, for visualizing the iterates of a function defined on the complex plane, or for obtaining identities among entries in Pascal's triangle. Some of these ideas, previously considered quite advanced, have become tractable because of advances in computational technology. Others are just beautiful classical mathematics, topics that have fallen out of fashion and that deserve to be resurrected. Most importantly, the book is about some mathematical ways of thinking the author found extremely useful, both in his roles as a mathematician and as a mentor of young people learning to do mathematics.--Publisher description

Handouts are included for each module. Module One, "Laying the Groundwork," provides information to help identify characteristics of the iep and ifsp (Individualized Family Service Plan), including purpose, benefits, and stages in the development process. Module Two, "What Do I Do Now? Understanding and Implementing the iep," assists in formulating strategies for translating iep goals and objectives into classroom activities that reflect developmentally appropriate practice and developing a systematic approach for monitoring ongoing process. Module Three, "Working Together," identifies methods for encouraging collaboration and communication between families, Head Start staff, and related service providers. The final sections of the guide provide strategies supervisors can use to help staff apply new skills and extend their learning, and resource lists of print and audiovisual materials. (Sd)

Supporting children with challenging behaviors : relationships are key : training guides for the Head Start learning community by Inc., Cambridge, Ma Education Development Center( Book )

2 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 223 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Increasingly, teachers are expressing their growing concern about problem behaviors many children display in their classrooms. This technical guide offers Head Start staff a process for reflecting on their own practice, assessing difficult situations, and designing interventions for problem behaviors through joint problem solving. The guide is written for Head Start teaching teams and their immediate supervisors; it will also be useful to family service workers, home visitors, managers, and other Head Start staff, as well as consultants. The guide contains the following sections: (1) "Module 1: Laying the Groundwork" helps participants identify ways in which their own perceptions and experiences influence how they interact with children with challenging behaviors; (2) "Module 2: Practically Speaking" helps participants develop a system for collecting data and then using it to develop strategies that capitalize on children's strengths and needs; (3) "Module 3: Building a Supportive Environment" helps participants identify when and how to seek appropriate supports within the program and within the community in an effort to fully integrate children with challenging behaviors into their programs; (4) "Continuing Professional Development" offers strategies that supervisors can use to help staff apply new skills and extend their learning; and (5) "Resources" lists print and audiovisual materials and other resources that staff can use to learn more about the key issues presented in the guide. In order to accommodate the needs of different Head Start grantees, each module offers two different delivery strategies: workshop and coaching. (Ev)
Sustainability : building program and coalition support by Peggy Glider( Book )

2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Given the prevalence of alcohol and other drug abuse and violence on campuses and in communities, programs and coalitions developed to prevent or intervene in these problems are faced with a challenging and long-term task. While the development of coalitions or campus-based prevention programs is a healthy start, these efforts must be sustained over time to have a truly lasting effect. Sustainability can seem a daunting task in the midst of implementing programs or mobilizing a coalition; however, by incorporating sustainability into all aspects of prevention efforts (assessment, planning, implementation, and evaluation), it becomes an achievable goal. This emphasis on sustainability will actually strengthen prevention efforts from the beginning. This publication is organized into two basic sections. The first emphasizes the need to include sustainability in assessment, planning, and evaluation. The final section focuses on mechanisms for developing and promoting sustainable programs and coalitions. Each aspect plays a role in overall sustainability. This paper presents suggestions for program and coalition sustainability that have been synthesized from publications, Web sites, and personal experiences shared by colleagues across the country.

Problem analysis : the first step in prevention planning by William DeJong( )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Student alcohol and other drug abuse and violence (aodv) still reign as the most serious social problems faced by U.S. institutions of higher education. To tackle these problems, campus administrators--working in conjunction with partners from the surrounding community--need to put in place an integrated set of strategies that address the mix of individual, group, institutional, community, and societal factors that lead to student substance abuse and violence. This type of comprehensive approach--called environmental management--cannot be implemented without using a systematic planning and evaluation process. This publication outlines the first step of that process: "problem analysis." This step, often referred to as "needs assessment," is an essential feature of the U.S. Department of Education's principles of effectiveness for aodv prevention programs. Conducting a problem analysis involves: (1) gathering objective data on the nature and scope of the problem at both national and local levels; (2) examining available resources and assets in the campus community; and (3) analyzing and summarizing this information to clarify needs and opportunities. Note that the process outlined here is suitable for both two- and four-year institutions, including both residential and commuter campuses. (Contains 1 table and 3 resources.)
Field experiences in effective prevention : the U.S. Department of Education's Alcohol and Other Drug Prevention Models on College Campuses Grants by Barbara E Ryan( )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For more than two decades the U.S. Department of Education has supported campus- and community-based prevention programs through a number of programs and activities. For example, in 1987 the Department convened the first annual National Meeting for Alcohol and Other Drug Abuse and Violence Prevention in Higher Education as a forum to disseminate best practices and research to advance prevention. The Department's Grant Competition to Prevent High-Risk Drinking or Violent Behavior Among College Students has supported the development and evaluation of prevention programs at more than 200 colleges and universities. In response to ongoing concern about unacceptable levels of alcohol and other drug use on campuses, in 1998 Congress authorized the Department to identify and promote effective prevention through a model grants program. In 1999, the Office of Safe and Drug-Free Schools (osdfs) launched an important component of the Department's efforts to advance best practices, the Alcohol and Other Drug Prevention Models on College Campuses Grants, restructured in 2008 as Models of Exemplary, Effective, and Promising Alcohol or Other Drug Abuse Prevention on College Campuses. A total of 44 institutions received awards under this program from 1999 through 2009. Each campus has publicized its work by presenting at conferences, sponsoring workshops, distributing brochures and other materials, and consulting directly with other campus-based staff developing and directing prevention programs. This publication provides case histories on the development and implementation of prevention efforts at 12 colleges and universities that received model program grants in 2005, 2006, and 2007. Staff from the Department's Higher Education Center for Alcohol, Drug Abuse, and Violence Prevention, along with other experts in the prevention field, conducted site visits to these grantees to elicit information on the lessons learned at each campus as well as their recommendations in order to assist other campuses in developing and implementing effective alcohol and other drug abuse prevention programs. Interview Questions is appended. (Contains 19 resources and 52 notes.)
