While the yeomanís work for the Primer was accomplished by its author, several other people also deserve acknowledgment for their efforts. Michael Allen, of ECS, provided ongoing guidance and served as principal editor. Zoe Barley and Lou Cicchinelli, of McREL, also provided helpful guidance and suggestions. Rick Griffith, of o2 Group, engineered the Primerís graphic design and Web functionality. Additional editorial review was provided by Barbara Gaddy and Mya Martin-Glenn, of McREL, and Dale DeCesare and Josie Canales, of ECS.
Funding was provided by the U.S. Department of Education, under McRELís Regional Educational Laboratory contract and through a grant to ECS from the Fund for the Improvement of Education. Particular thanks go to Thelma Leenhouts, program officer for the ECS grant, for her patience and support.
