INTERIM PROGRESS REPORT OF A REMOTE TEACHER TRAINING INSTITUTE FOR EARLY CHILDHOOD EDUCATORS (FUNDED BY NDEA TITLE XI).
BRUDENELL, GERALD A.; MEIER, JOHN H.
IN AN EFFORT TO TRAIN TEACHERS TOO GEORGRAPHICALLY SEPARATED TO MEET REGULARLY FOR COURSE WORK, AN INSTITUTE WAS PLANNED AT COLORADO STATE COLLEGE IN GREELEY, COLORADO, ONE HUNDRED TEACHERS ATTENDED 2- TO 5-DAY ORIENTATION SESSIONS CONCERNING THE USE OF MICROTEACHING TECHNIQUES AND SPECIFICALLY DEVELOPED MATERIALS IN WORKING WITH DISADVANTAGED NURSERY SCHOOL CHILDREN. UPON RETURNING TO THEIR OWN PRESCHOOLS, THE TEACHERS WERE INSTRUCTED TO VIEW A FILMED DEMONSTRATION TEACHING EXAMPLE, TO TEACH 4 PREWRITTEN LEARNING EPISODES TO SEVERAL OF THEIR CHILDREN, AND TO VIDEOTAPE 1 OF THE LESSONS IN A NEARBY RECORDING CENTER. THE TEACHER WAS THEN TO COMPARE THE RESULTS WITH THE FILMED SAMPLE, FILL OUT EVALUATION FORMS AND MAIL THESE WITH THE TAPE TO THE INSTITUTE FOR CHILD STUDY IN GREELEY WHERE THE LESSON WOULD BE CRITICIZED AND LATER RETURNED TO THE TEACHER. PROJECT DATA WILL BE ANALYZED AND FINDINGS REPORTED BY JULY 1968. IF THIS TYPE OF REMOTE TEACHER TRAINING PROVES TO BE SUCCESSFUL, IT COULD PROFITABLY BE USED FOR TEACHER SELF-EVALUATION OR TRAINING IN AREAS REMOTE FROM EDUCATIONAL INSTITUTIONS. THIS PAPER WAS PRESENTED AT THE AMERICAN EDUCATIONAL RESEARCH ASSOCIATION (CHICAGO, FEBRUARY, 1968). (MS)
