An Analysis of Extended Planning Periods for Teacher Corps Projects.
Houston, W. Robert; And Others
The advantages and disadvantages of an extended planning period for implementing a Teacher Corps program are examined. A planning period of several months duration, four to six months for example, is deemed beneficial to the outcome of a project, while a longer period may possibly cause a loss of momentum and sense of goal. However, a planning period longer than two months provides the potential for a more effective project only if management plans formulated during proposal writing and revised during preplanning periods are monitored regularly. It is pointed out that special training opportunities should be provided as part of the planning period for program managers, and that intern recruitment should be initiated early. A set of guidelines developed for Teacher Corps Advisory Groups is presented. Appended to this report are: (1) a chronicle of study events; (2) memoranda to study team; (3) indicators of extended planing period; (4) areas to consider in assessing planning; (5) materials reviewed during the study; and (6) interview protocols.
