The Temple City Story: New Careers in Teaching; Differentiated Staffing.
Stover, Michael, Ed.
This report of the Temple City, California, differentiated staffing project contains several articles describing progress made in the first three years of operation. The major article traces the history and development of the project, outlines the financial plan and schedule through 1972, and describes several characteristics of the model: (1) self-regulation of the teaching profession through teacher participation in evaluation and in the formulation of academic policies; (2) new roles for principals as "social managers" and chairmen of the academic senates; (3) inservice training programs offering instructional management studies, behavioral study of organizations, and instruction in model building and human relations for senior and master teachers; microteaching experiences for staff teachers; auxiliary training for paraprofessionals, and evaluation training for all. "The New Structure in Teaching" describes the responsibilities, training, salary, and tenure plans for the instructional staff of 60 associate teachers, 85 staff teachers, 20 senior teachers, and four master teachers, plus auxiliary personnel including aides at three levels, and clerks. Other articles include one which describes the composition and function of the Project Steering Committee and one which outlines the flexible scheduling plan which allows for independent study and variable course structure through a school day divided into 25 15-minute modules.
