Abstract:

A discussion of innovative methods in education outlines the major logical elements that a theory of innovative behavior should comprise. These are objectives, implementation, production possibilities, and evaluation. Two competing explanatory models are developed, both with the same logical superstructure but with different emphases and parameter values. The paper attempts a step toward the formulation and research of testable propositions about innovation and the schools.
