Summative Report the Innovative Science Training Program 1968-1969.
Labahn, William F.
Reported is a program for models for in-service science training programs which school systems could use as they plan for the improvement of science education for children. The consumers of this program's services included classroom teachers (K-8), science supervisors, curriculum directors, and building principals. Personnel involved in program development and implementation included a program coordinator, adjunct staff from a local school district, university professors, and ad hoc consultants. Based on data accumulated from training feedback forms, it was concluded that participants reacted most positively to: (1) general session activities in which content was of practical value, (2) general sessions presented by outside consultants using multimedia, (3) group activity sessions in which their involvement was maximized and they were able to manipulate materials and interact on what they were doing. Data gathered by a Semantic Differential indicate that participants attitudes shifted significantly toward a more positive attitude toward the inquiry approach and the presentation of science to children. This work was prepared under an ESEA Title III contract. (BR)
