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 416 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 )
1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 276 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

Intended to help Head Start programs recruit and include children with significant disabilities and their families, this guide offers Head Start staff tools to work more collaboratively to plan and implement integrated services for all children, especially children with significant disabilities. Following an introductory section, the guide presents three training modules. Each module details expected outcomes, key concepts, background information, learning activities, and next steps. Handouts are included for each module. Module One, "Getting Ready," helps participants identify how their own experiences and assumptions influence their relationships with children with significant disabilities and offers strategies that can be used to be more family centered. Module Two, "Making it Work," helps participants adapt their practices and develop strategies to support the participation of children with significant disabilities in their Head Start Programs. Module Three, "Promoting Collaboration," helps managers work more effectively with service providers and community agencies to recruit and include children with significant disabilities and their families. The final sections of the guide offers continuing professional development and resource lists that staff can use to learn more about the key issues presented in the guide. (Contains 14 appendices that detail specific disabilities.) (Sd)

Sustainability : building program and coalition support by Peggy Glider( Book )
2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 6 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. (Contains 3 resources.)

Strategic planning for prevention professionals on campus by Linda Langford( file )
1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 0 libraries worldwide
The nation's institutions of higher education continue to face serious problems with respect to student alcohol and other drug abuse and violence (aodv). For campus administrators, deciding how to respond effectively means understanding and taking into account both the complexity of these social problems and the individuality of each campus community. There can be no simple answer: Complicated problems require a comprehensive and integrated response, and crafting such a response requires a systematic planning and evaluation process. To support campus leaders addressing aodv problems among their students, this publication describes a strategic planning process for designing, implementing, and refining aodv programs and policies. The planning process described herein is grounded in a prevention approach called "environmental management", which focuses on addressing various factors in the environment that contribute to AODV-related problems. This is not a detailed manual, but a basic introduction to the elements and purposes of sound intervention planning, consistent with the U.S. Department of Education's principles of effectiveness for prevention programs. (Contains 1 table, 1 figure and 9 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( file )
1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 0 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.)
