Readings in Staff Development.
Southern Regional Education Board, Atlanta, GA.
This book of readings is divided into two sections, each describing a specific aspect of staff development. There are three articles on planning in Section I. The quadrant arrangement developed in Georgia is described as one method of facilitating cooperation between an institution and the State Department of Education to serve a particular area of the state. In contrast, cooperative effort throughout the state is the focus of the article on developing plans for Adult Basic Education (ABE) in Alabama. In Florida, the unique relationship between a local school system staff development person who works along with a university faculty member is described as a mode for determining and then meeting training needs. Section II describes what has evolved through coordinated planning and training efforts in three states. The development of adult basic education capabilities of distinctive types at three institutions of higher education in Mississippi points out how responsibility can be delegated to serve both subject area and geographical needs. The growth and refinement of a delivery system for local ABE inservice training in South Carolina underlines how trained teachers can be part of a statewide network for local inservice training. The last presentation is an article on a supervisor's workshop describing orientation and training of ABE supervisory personnel in Tennesee. (Author/CK)
