Instructional problem-solving in staff development the principal's role by L. E Davis( Book )

2 editions published in 1986 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1980 the Pittsburgh (Pennsylvania) Public Schools recognized needs for significant improvement in staff evaluation, student achievement, individual school effectiveness, and the clarification of systemwide objectives and expectations. The instructional leadership committee appointed to establish a unified approach to effective instruction reviewed the literature and created a staff development team committed to developing principals as instructional leaders. The training that the principals received increased their confidence and enhanced school effectiveness, leading to higher student achievement. The case of John A. Brashear High School is illustrative of the principal's role. The principal formed an "instructional cabinet" to assess the school's needs and develop action plans. This team decided to focus on reducing the ninth-grade failure rate by implementing a plan involving tutorial assistance, student achievement recognition, inservice training for teachers using the Madeline Hunter teaching model, and peer development assistance among teachers. The program cut the ninth-grade failure rate by over 50 percent in 2 years. Such examples indicate that the principal's role in encouraging local school program development to meet district objectives is central, and involves setting clear expectations, utilizing lead teachers effectively, establishing structures for professional interaction, and differentiating among supervisory functions.

Strategies for Improving the Educational Outcomes of Low Achieving and Ethnic Minority Students The Pittsburgh Experience, 1980-86. Revised by L. E Davis( Book )

2 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the fall of 1980 the Pittsburgh Board of Education embarked on a program of change and improvement for all public schools in the city. A comprehensive needs assessment was conducted by groups with broad school and community interests. The need to improve student achievement in basic skills was identified as the priority. The Monitoring Achievement in Pittsburgh (MAP) program was developed to address the need for a common instructional program in mathematics; and the School Improvement Program was created to provide focused educational reforms to schools with the most severe achievement problems. Achievement scores have increased since 1980. Now new initiatives are necessary to target high risk students. The new programs are the following: (1) Kids Incorporated--a rewards program which maintains the students' enthusiasm for learning; (2) in-school tutoring which develops the students' self-concept as well as their academic skills; (3) Superstars--a rewards program which also develops self-esteem; (4) an attendance monitoring system which notifies parents of student absences; (5) individualized inservice and action plans which deal with cultural and value differences; and (6) a computer-assisted program which monitors student achievement.

Collaborative Intervention Approaches for At-Risk Youth The Pittsburgh Experience by Stanley E Denton( Book )

1 edition published in 1988 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1987, the Board of Education of the Pittsburgh (Pennsylvania) Public Schools set goals for reducing the achievement gap between black students and white students and improving the educational outcomes of all low achievers, regardless of race. This paper summarizes programs, most involving parents, community leaders, and the corporate sector in service delivery for at-risk students, that have emerged from the 1987 board priorities. The initiatives described fall into the following categories: (1) district-based programs; (2) city-based programs; and (3) state-supported programs. District-based programs include the following: (1) community educational activity centers (CEACs); (2) Explorers of Growth Opportunities (EGO); (3) Pittsburgh Achievement in Secondary Schools (PASS); and (4) Pittsburgh Achievement Renaissance (PAR). City-based programs include the Pittsburgh New Futures initiative and the Mayor's Commission on Families. State-supported programs include Teacher Expectations and Student Achievement (TESA) and Occupational Vocational Technical (OVT) programs, such as: (1) Second Chance; (2) Select Employment Trainee Program (SET); (3) Summer Academy; (4) Northside Civic Development Project; and (5) Business and Finance Academy. A 13-item bibliography is included. Appendices include Board of Public Education priorities for 1980 and 1986, and 1987-88 goals of the Mayor's Commission on Families, including strategies, implementers, and timetables for goal accomplishment.

A Recipe for the Development of an Effective Teaching Clinic by L. E Davis( Book )

1 edition published in 1986 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For a variety of reasons, including overemphasis on professional autonomy, many classroom teachers experience disillusionment and feelings of isolation. This paper explores teaching clinics as a way to break down barriers and foster dialogue among teachers. The Schenley High School Teacher Center in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, developed a teaching clinic where all district secondary teachers attend an eight-week professional redevelopment program. The clinic involves groups of six teachers who observe a teaching episode, collaboratively analyze observation data, and provide the focus teacher with feedback. The process is facilitated by two specially trained clinical resident teachers, a clinical coordinator, and four visiting teachers with effective teacher training. The program emphasizes peer interaction and has elicited favorable responses from participants. The recipe for program success includes: (1) adequate preparation (immersing instructional and administrative staff in discussions and inservice sessions on relevant topics), (2) organizing the ingredients (instructional leadership, an adopted instructional model, training, interaction opportunities, and competent facilitators), (3) mixing thoroughly (promoting teacher interaction, involving administrators, stimulating opportunities for peer observation and feedback and other activities), and (4) simmering gently (sustaining a caring, nurturing ambience). Attached is an outline of the three phases of a teaching clinic and 18 references. (Mlh)

The energetic response to handling stress in juvenile coho salmon (Oncorhynchus kisutch) by L. E Davis( Book )

1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Various aspects of the energetic response to handling stress in juvenile coho salmon (Oncorhynchus kisutch) were examined. Fish were subjected to four different handling stressors in a Blazka-style respirometer. Stressed fish had rates of oxygen consumption that were higher than controls. The magnitude of the increase ranged from 139 to 198% of the control value, and appeared roughly related to the severity of the stressor. The post-stress increase in oxygen consumption also appeared to vary seasonally, with less of a stress effect on respiration observed in the spring as compared to the fall. Elevation in oxygen consumption following stress was largely eliminated within 1 h post-stress, but metabolic rate may have remained slightly elevated for an additional 2 h. Plasma cortisol and lactate titers also increased significantly following handling stressors. Oxygen consumption was positively correlated with both plasma cortisol and lactate after a moderate stressor, but no correlation was found after more severe stressors. Whole body lactate concentration was significantly elevated following stress, reaching levels almost 500% higher than controls. By 5 h post-stress whole body lactate had returned to control levels. The mechanism of excess post-stress oxygen consumption remains unclear. Fish given exogenous cortisol did not experience an increase in oxygen consumption, so it is unlikely that cortisol alone has a major effect on metabolic rate. Similarities between the energetic responses to both stress and exercise suggest that the results of exercise physiology may provide a basis for understanding the energetic response to stress

Evaluation of facilities for collection, bypass and transportation of outmigrating chinook salmon : annual report, November, 1992 (revised October 1993)( )

1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Chinook salmon smolts held at low densities (0.06 - 0.08 lbs/gal) in raceways with large (>200 mm) steelhead smolts at the little Goose facility had plasma cortisol levels similar to chinook held without large steelhead. The presence of steelhead did not appear to be stressful to juvenile chinook. Juvenile chinook passing through the downstream section of the fish size and debris separator at the little Goose facility were more stressed than fish exiting the upstream section. Smolts exiting the downstream section had higher plasma cortisol and lower plasma chloride concentrations. No differences between the two groups were found in body size, condition factor, gill histology, gill Na+/K+ ATPase, or incidence and severity of bacterial kidney disease
