Project for the Inservice Preparation of Teachers for the Desegregation of Selected School Faculties Through the Implementation of Team Teaching. Technical Progress Report, April 1, 1967 through June 30, 1967.
Chattanooga Public Schools, TN.
The 1967 project for staff desegregation through interracial team teaching, conducted in 16 schools in Chattanooga, Tenn., used three methods of inservice training: workshops for teachers and principals before the opening of school, planning and evaluation sessions during the school year, and on-the-job training in daily sessions with resource teachers. Information about the project was widely disseminated throughout the area. The effectiveness of the faculty desegregation was evaluated in a 1-day workshop; it was found that "comfortable" interracial relations had developed among the teachers on the teams. The success of team teaching as an organizational design for instruction was assessed by means of questionnaires. Copies of these questionnaires, a summary of the participants' responses during the workshop, and an outline of a plan for staff desegregation are included in an appendix. (EF)
