SOLICITATION NUMBER: RFP ED-98-R-0023
POC: Contract Specialist James Rivera, (202)708-9784.
BROAD AGENCY ANNOUNCEMENT -- The United States Department of Education (ED) is interested in receiving abstracts for projects that will create or expand highly effective and replicable models of (1) preservice teacher education and inservice professional development programs that reflect concepts of contextual teaching and learning, and (2) High School Career Academies focused on education and teaching as a career option. Contextual teaching and learning concepts are defined as those strategies that focus on students as active learners and provide a wide range of learning opportunities for them to solve complex, “real world” problems. These strategies help students make the connection between knowledge and its applications to their lives as family members, citizens and workers. Assessment is ongoing and blended with this teaching and learning; it is reciprocal in nature with evaluation of both activities. Contextual teaching and learning emphasizes higher level thinking, knowledge transfer, as well as collecting, analyzing and synthesizing information and data from multiples sources and viewpoints.
Submissions due by 2 p.m., July 10, 1998.
