Sustainability of Evidence-Based Curriculum in Head Start Classrooms

Resource Type: Administration for Children and Families/OPRE Projects
Principal Investigator(s): Sanford DeRousie, Rebecca M.; Bierman, Karen L.;
Date Issued: 2006
Description: The Pennsylvania State University will examine the factors that contribute to successful implementation and sustainability of an evidence-based preschool curriculum, the Head Start Research-based Developmentally Informed (REDI) project. The specific aims of the project are to: (a) evaluate implementation quality in the Head Start REDI randomized trial; (b) ascertain what factors contribute to variability in implementation quality; (c) determine what aspects of the REDI curriculum are sustained after teachers are no longer required by the research project to implement it; and (d) determine which factors are associated with a high level of sustainability and maintenance of the REDI curriculum. The sample will include 22 lead teachers in the intervention classrooms of the larger Head Start REDI trial. A mixed-methods approach will be used which will include teacher reports, REDI mentor reports, classroom observations, and a qualitative teacher interview. Findings from this study are expected to provide Head Start with a concrete example of how to implement and maintain evidence-based programs.
