Description [Washington, D.C.] : Distributed by ERIC Clearinghouse, 1966 
21 p. 

The goals, research tasks, and functional operation of a research and instruction (r and i) unit were described. R and i units were organized to provide the means to conduct classroom research and to develop more efficient learning processes through the cooperation of local schools, state personnel, and university faculty members. The activities of a unit, composed of a learning specialist, teachers, and noncertified assistants, are similar to team teaching, but the unit has different responsibilities. Any variable or problem of school learning was regarded as appropriate for research by r and i units. The author discussed 10 principles of learning that should be applied and tested by r and i units. The principles stated were (1) motivate your students, (2) provide for individual differences, (3) select meaningful material, (4) organize the subject matter effectively, (5) provide appropriate models for students, (6) guide initial trials, (7) arrange practice periods effectively, (8) evaluate the student's progress, (9) provide for recall, and (10) help the students apply knowledge. Social forces, family influences, and administrative pressures were included among other factors to be considered by r and i units. The author also gave a brief description of the research and development activities of the r and i units established by the research and development center for learning and re-education at the University of Wisconsin. This paper was presented to the joint conference, council of school superintendents, and New York state association school district administrators (rochester, September 30, 1965). (al)
