[Preparing Inservice Elementary School Personnel to Lead Classroom Teachers in Implementing Change. A Proposal.]
State Univ. of New York, Fredonia. Coll. at Fredonia.
Ten school systems in western New York will send local school teams consisting of an administrator, a curriculum supervisor, and classroom teachers to participate in a 6-week campus summer session for the specific purpose of developing knowledge and skills which will permit them to become critical "change agent" teams in their elementary schools. The changes to which they will give rise will be in curricular practices as developed in several of the newer curricular proposals (especially science and social studies). Teams will study intensively the areas of appropriate curriculums on the one hand and group dynamics on the other; emphasis will be on the understanding of the principles of group phenomena and value theory with application to leadership skills of inservice teachers, research psychology and sociology applicable to curriculum innovation, and innovations in selected curricular areas. Followup activities during the academic year will include field experience in local school curriculum leadership; financial support to set proposed projects in motion; extension of curriculum efforts to areas other than social studies and science; and conferences to evaluate and renew summer experiences and skills and to disseminate and discuss results. (Included in this proposal are five summer course descriptions and the model for local school curriculum design and implementation, upon which the proposed program is based.) (Author/JS)
