Summary

The purpose of this project was to develop guidelines for teaching which would implement into the classroom some of what is known about learning. A booklet of suggestions was prepared in the first year of the project and a 30-hour training program to accompany the booklet was developed in the second year. During the second year of the project, the year which is the subject of this report, a new group of teachers was brought together for the 30-hour training program. Another group of teachers were selected as control teachers who would not receive the 30 hours of training. These two groups were compared both before and after treatment with classroom observations and achievement tests. The resulting data strongly favored the experimental teachers in changed instructional behavior and gave some indication that the pupils of the experimental teachers achieved to a higher degree than did those of the control teachers.
