Appendix A to Vol. III in a series of reports, sponsored by the U.S. Office of Education (USOE), on federally funded (change agent) programs designed to introduce and spread innovative practices in public schools. This appendix deals with Title III of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, which funds innovative projects proposed by local school districts. It describes USOE planning strategies for Title III and the role of state education agencies in Title III. The focus of this appendix is on projects that were reputed to be successful in one of two particularly difficult aspects of reform: classroom organization, which implies a shift in classroom practice toward concepts of open education, and staff development, which aims at important changes in teacher behavior. The syntheses of the fieldwork case studies (ten are included) describe the similarities and differences found in project planning, implementation, and adaptation for both types of projects.
