Guam Education Project: Teacher Education Program. Final Report.
Northwest Regional Educational Lab., Portland, OR.
This 2-year program, extending from 1968 to 1970, was to develop a comprehensive teacher education program encompassing both inservice and preservice education and to establish self-renewing procedures in the Guam educational agencies. Workshops utilizing instructional systems developed by the Northwest Regional Educational Laboratory served as inservice education for elementary and secondary school teachers and University of Guam faculty during 1968-69. The workshops focused on specific teaching skills. Four of the instructional systems have been implemented as courses and will continue to be available to teachers and college faculty as inservice until their place in a continuous teacher education curriculum can be determined. A key element of the self-renewing procedure is the use of teachers trained in the original inservice workshops as trainers for other teachers. Activities in 1969-70 led to the development and acceptance of a 5-year plan that will enable the University of Guam to develop a comprehensive teacher education program. (The report includes several appendixes which describe workshop content and present results of participant evaluation of the workshops. A flow chart of the five-year development plan is also included.) (RT)
