Teacher Training and Reading Institutes in Poverty Area School Districts. Evaluation of ESEA Title I Projects in New York City, 1967-68.
Gewirtz, Marvin H.
The 1967-68 Teacher Training and Reading Institutes constituted the third cycle of a program funded under Title I of the 1965 Elementary and Secondary Education Act, and performed under contract with the New York City Board of Education. The main objective of the training institutes was to provide teachers with training and insights particularly relevant to the teaching of disadvantaged children, primarily designed for the new and experienced teacher, but also serving as refresher programs for the experienced. The evaluation of the institute, described in this report, is based on extensive observations of the teacher-training workshop into districts in order to achieve an objective view of the program. The findings covered (1) the institute planning and structure, encompassing supervision and support, coordination at district level, program planning, and the schedule of the institutes, (2) the staff, (3) the trainees, and (4) program implementation. That the institutes were not uniformly successful in achieving the program objectives is principally adduced to the incomplete decentralization process the program underwent during its operational period.
