Madison Public Schools, WI.
A major portion of this report explains an evaluation system for producing objective data regarding teacher classroom performance after inservice training changed their role or behavior in the classroom. Three major objectives for the workshop inservice courses are: 1) to make teachers facilitators of knowledge; 2) to change the type of teaching learning transaction of participating teachers from deductive (read or say) to inductive (inquire and share); and 3) to transmit to teachers mastery of TABA teaching strategies of concept development, interpretation of data, feelings and values, and application of generalizations. Each participant is required to record an audio-taped discussion session in the classroom at the beginning of the program, halfway through the program, and again at the end of the course. These tapes will be analyzed for specific items relative to good teaching procedures as explained in the report. Supplements include interaction charts and graphs, evaluation charts, and a short section on establishing a criterion level. Six appendices related to the 2 credit hour university course are provided. (Author/SJM)
