MRI book cover

MRI: Management Review Instrument for Head Start & Early Head Start Program Evaluation/Self-Assessment

This instrument is designed to assist Boards, Policy Councils, parents, and staff in collecting information and making determinations vis-a-vie the five program domains: the need for the program, the design of the program, program implementation and service delivery, program impact or outcomes, and program efficiency. The MRI is not designed to be a comprehensive tool (The T/TAS Self-Assessment CATscan Tool fulfills that niche), rather, the MRI places a heavy emphasis on utilizing existing monitoring tools and external evaluations to determine if the program is meeting and reporting its progress on meeting goals while evaluating how well the program is positively impacting its local community. The major difference between the MRI and the CATscan is that the MRI is not designed to be comprehensive, and as such, allows for easier modification during non-traditional instruction and outreach periods such as COVID-19.

Format is a PDF fillable form, and also includes separate component breakout sections as PDFs, and a Self-Assessment Report Template in MSWord. (87 pages, 1st Edition, 2019). Item No. MG015 e-book $200

 The Great Disconnect book cover

The Great Disconnect in Early Childhood Education 
is a ground-breaking book that argues that early learning standards and school readiness goals have failed to produce any long term benefits while making the daily lives of children and teachers more stressful and tedious. What we need instead are classrooms that are more human, responsive, and joyful. We need to provide experiences that make every child feel that they are loved and that they belong. And during this very brief window of opportunity we call early childhood, we need to build the communication and critical thinking skills that last a lifetime.
