The charter school review process : a guide for chartering entities by Bryan C Hassel( Book )

2 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 83 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Prospective founders of charter schools must gain the approval of a public organization empowered by state law to grant charters. Common examples of chartering entities include state and local boards of education, boards of public universities and community colleges, and specially created charter-school boards. This guide is designed to help officials at chartering entities design a process for reviewing charter-school applications, assemble a high-quality review team, establish meaningful review criteria, gather essential information, develop a process for arriving at good judgments, and blend the review process into a supportive charter-school environment. Besides aiding decision making, a well-designed review process is educational, enhances accountability, and builds relationships and legitimacy. The heart of this guide consists of practical, step-by-step information about establishing and implementing a top-notch charter school review process. Chapters cover: assessing the context, structuring the process, establishing criteria, generating good proposals, gathering information, making decisions, and evaluate the process. Each chapter includes q & A's on pressing concerns, options (procedural advice on critical issues), and inspirational quotations. Appendices show which states have charter laws, list helpful resource persons and materials, and list federal laws applicable to charter schools. (Mlh)
Literacy learning on the net : an exploratory study by Mary L McNabb( Book )

2 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The rapid infusion of the Internet into public schools makes it possible for students and teachers to participate in a range of literacy events as well as access reading resources previously unavailable to them in the classroom. This report outlines a study which explored literacy researchers and lead teachers' thinking about the benefits of Internet-based curricular activities and instructional practices used to enhance students' literacy. The report cites the primary questions that guided the inquiry: What are the literacy skills students need to use the Internet within curriculum?; How are these literacy skills the same as for using printed books and paper-based writing and how are they different?; And What literacy guidelines would help teachers prepare their students to use the Internet effectively? It states that the specific strategies investigated relate to several of the English language arts standards and National Educational Technology Standards for students and teachers. It explains that three sources of data were used in forming the report: (1) five outstanding researchers in technology and literacy were interviewed by telephone; (2) 13 teachers who use the Internet extensively for literacy learning were interviewed; and (3) an online survey of teachers and staff developers was conducted to gather descriptive information about Internet-based literacy learning in the classroom. The report finds that researchers and teachers indicate a number of educational benefits of Internet-based curricular activities. Contains 11 notes, 5 tables of data, and 51 references. (Nka)
