Project To Strengthen Elementary and Secondary Education in Guam. Vol. 1, Education Objectives Commission. Vol. 2, Orientation Program for Contract Teachers. Final Report.
Northwest Regional Educational Lab., Portland, OR.
In April 1969, the U.S. Office of Education funded an EPDA proposal for the Territory of Guam. The purpose of the first of the two projects was to provide training for community leaders and educators so that long-term planning, needs assessment, and citizen involvement would lead to an integrated education system responsive to the society and helpful in self-improvement. The Education Objectives Commission was established and educational personnel were trained to function as long-range planners and to provide technical support. The second project was intended to identify the kinds of experiences which would help contract teachers adjust more rapidly to Guam and its culture. The document includes extensive appendixes for each project. Those for the first project include the development of the program, workshop participants, and overview of the Guam planning and decision-making system, the training program components, product of concerns analysis, and participants' responses to the workshops. For the second project the appendixes include the orientation program for the contracts teachers, general teachers survey, needs assessment survey responses, training programs, selection of field test participants, adjunctive activities to the orientation program, test scores, assessment forms, participant comments, and daily critique summary data.
