INSERVICE DESIGN FOR A SMALL SCHOOL DISTRICT.
HAAN, AUBREY S.
THE OBJECTIVES OF THE SUMMER SCHOOL WORKSHOP PROGRAM WERE (1) TO UPGRADE THE TEACHING OF SOCIAL STUDIES AS OUTLINED IN "THE SOCIAL STUDIES FRAMEWORK FOR PUBLIC SCHOOLS IN CALIFORNIA," (2) TO STRENGTHEN LOCAL DISTRICT LEADERSHIP IN THE AREA OF SOCIAL STUDIES, (3) TO FOCUS UPON ORGANIZING CENTERS FOR UNITS OF WORK TAUGHT IN SUMMER DEMONSTRATION SCHOOL, (4) TO ENCOURAGE TEACHERS TO USE THE INQUIRY APPROACH TO FOSTER THE DEVELOPMENT OF COGNITIVE ABILITY IN CHILDREN, AND (5) TO FOCUS TEACHER ATTENTION UPON N. E. A. BULLETIN "GUIDING CHILDREN THROUGH THE SOCIAL STUDIES." THE PROGRAM WAS PLANNED SO THAT DEMONSTRATION CLASSES OF SOCIAL STUDIES, GRADES THREE AND SIX, WERE OBSERVED BY THE WORKSHOP GROUP. SEMINARS, FOLLOWING THESE DEMONSTRATIONS, WERE LED BY THE DIRECTOR OF THE WORKSHOP. WORK PERIODS FOR THE WORKSHOP GROUPS WERE INCLUDED, DURING WHICH THE WORKSHOP STAFF SERVED IN A CONSULTING CAPACITY. THE WORK PERIODS WERE DEVOTED TO PLANNING AND WORKING FOR THE INCORPORATION OF WORKSHOP IDEAS INTO THE STRUCTURE OF SOCIAL STUDIES CURRICULUM. INDICATION SHOWS THAT AFTER THE FIRST YEAR'S RESEARCH STUDY, THE INSERVICE DESIGN IS SOUND AND THE PURPOSES OF THE PROGRAM ARE BEING ACHIEVED. WORKSHOPS PLANNED AROUND DEMONSTRATION TEACHING, OBSERVATION, SEMINARS, AND WORK PERIODS ARE AN EFFECTIVE MEANS TO INDUCE NEW PERSPECTIVES BOTH ABOUT THE NATURE OF THE CURRICULUM AREA AND TEACHING INVOLVED.
