The rattletrap trip by Rachel Anderson( Book )
1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 44 libraries worldwide
Sassy bundles her six "collected" children into an old camper van and sets off to be at one with nature. This means while Sassy creates bizarre artworks the children practice DD (domestic democracy) and I for I (independence for infants). Although Jewells does her best to learn how to light a fire, chop wood and cook with nothing but swedes and potatoes, it is not long before things start to fall apart. Suggested level: secondary

Use of state Chapter 1 funds in the Chicago public schools Districts 6 and 8 by Rachel Anderson( Book )
2 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 5 libraries worldwide
This report provides an overview of the importance of State Chapter 1 funds to schools in the most impoverished neighborhoods of Chicago (Illinois), schools that serve the city's most disadvantaged children. It documents the central role of programs in Chicago schools paid for with these funds, underscoring the importance of finding ways to balance the budget for schools that do not use State Chapter 1 funds for that purpose. Schools use these funds for the extension and development of a variety of programs. They permit the reduction of class sizes to allow for more individual attention. Schools have also used Chapter 1 funds to develop fine arts programs, after-school programs, and programs to increase parent participation in areas that include tutoring, monitoring, escorting students, and clerical duties. The report also discusses in detail how 19 Chicago elementary schools used State Chapter 1 funds. The information, which came from interviews with the principals, provides the following for each school: (1) school description; (2) use of funds; and (3) a case study of educational improvement.

Linking Home-Based Child Care and State-Funded Preschool: The CommunityConnections Preschool Program (Illinois Action for Children). EvaluationPhase 1-Implementation Study by Nicole Forry( Book )
1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 3 libraries worldwide
The Community Connections preschool program (herein referred to as Community Connections) was developed to help prepare children in home-based child care for success in school and in life. It has three goals: (1) to make state prekindergarten classroom experiences available to children in home-based care, (2) to extend classroom learning experiences in the home-based care setting, and (3) to support infant and toddler development in participating providers' homes. Illinois Action for Children (herein referred to as iafc) created the Community Connections program model in 2005 as Illinois was rapidly expanding its state prekindergarten program, which would ultimately change from serving exclusively at-risk children to become "Preschool for All." The Illinois State Board of Education has requested evidence that the Community Connections mixed model works before making funding available for it statewide. Education agencies in other states are expected to ask the same question. In Phase 1 of a two phase evaluation, iafc asked Child Trends and the National Center for Children in Poverty (nccp) to conduct a study to examine model clarity, fidelity, and the implementation of Community Connections. Phase 2, to take place after implementation issues are identified and addressed, will be an outcomes study. This report describes the methodology and presents the findings of Phase 1 of the evaluation of the Community Connections model, the implementation study. A key conclusion from this implementation evaluation is that many components of the Community Connections Model are being well implemented. They are reported on consistently and perceived favorably across groups of respondents. Yet there are a few areas in which it would be beneficial for further work to be undertaken to document elements of the program model. There are also specific elements that are proving challenging to implement and where work by program developers to provide additional training and supports would be beneficial. Appended are: (1) iafc Coordinator Interview Protocol; (2) Center Director Interview Protocol; (3) Center Teacher/Assistant Teacher Interview Protocol; (4) Home-Based Provider Interview Protocol; (5) Parent Interview Protocol; (6) ccat-r Results:Caregiver and Child Language and Engagement; (7) ccat-r Results:Health and Safety; (8) ccat-r Results:Materials; (9) Home-Based Provider Visit Record; and (10) Center Visit Form.

An Entrepreneur in the Classroom! Innovative Teaching by Rachel Anderson( Book )
1 edition published in 1997 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
Innovative educators teach creatively while showing compassion and respect for their students. Innovation allows educators to apply their unique talents to create a stimulating environment where learning is fun and exciting. Innovative teachers continually evaluate lesson plans and make modifications to allow for change. They make decisions affecting students at the grassroots level. Innovative teachers encourage parent and community participation. Children often come to school with emotional, physical, and cultural baggage, and teachers must take responsibility for them while being understanding of their unique needs. It is important for everyone in the community to be involved in education, regardless of age or social status. Suggestions from California teachers on improving the educational system include extending the school day, revamping the bureaucratic process to give teachers more authority, revising tenure, downsizing administration, rewarding great teachers, reducing class size, avoiding labels, offering more charter schools, empowering paraprofessionals, and providing more field experience and mandatory inner city experience for all teachers. The paper describes three schools' approaches to innovative teaching: Jaime Escalante, a former East Los Angeles mathematics teacher; Velda Correa, principal of an elementary school in Weslaco, Texas; and Marva Collins, director of a private school in Chicago, Illinois.

Simulation of BaBar Drift Chamber ( file )
1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 0 libraries worldwide
The BaBar drift chamber (DCH) is used to measure the properties of charged particles created from e{sup +}e{sup -} collisions in the PEP-II asymmetric-energy storage rings by making precise measurements of position, momentum and ionization energy loss (dE/dx). In October of 2005, the PEP-II storage rings operated with a luminosity of 10 x 10{sup 33} cm{sup -2}s{sup -1}; the goal for 2007 is a luminosity of 20 x 10{sup 33} cm{sup -2}s{sup -1}, which will increase the readout dead time, causing uncertainty in drift chamber measurements to become more significant in physics results. The research described in this paper aims to reduce position and dE/dx uncertainties by improving our understanding of the BaBar drift chamber performance. A simulation program--called GARFIELD--is used to model the behavior of the drift chamber with adjustable parameters such as gas mixture, wire diameter, voltage, and magnetic field. By exploring the simulation options offered in GARFIELD, we successfully produced a simulation model of the BaBar drift chamber. We compared the time-to-distance calibration from BaBar to that calculated by GARFIELD to validate our model as well as check for discrepancies between the simulated and calibrated time-to-distance functions, and found that for a 0{sup o} entrance angle there is a very good match between calibrations, but at an entrance angle of 90{sup o} the calibration breaks down. Using this model, we also systematically varied the gas mixture to find one that would optimize chamber operation, which showed that the gas mixture of 80:20 Helium:isobutane is a good operating point, though more calculations need to be done to confirm that it is the optimal mixture
