Triangulation: A Strategy for Formative Action Research On In-Service Education. Kent State University Teacher Corps Papers--No. 3.
Clegg, Ambrose; And Others
An action research model of program planning and inservice teacher education is presented. The model systematically includes three groups of participants--teachers and paraprofessionals, parents and members of the community, and university and administrative personnel, and is called the "triangulation" model. Inherent in the design is the potential for providing continuous feedback and input, from each of the three groups, thus producing a source of information for data-based decision-making. The model is used as a planning vehicle for a federally funded Teacher Corps project jointly operated by the Akron Public schools, the Akron community, and Kent State University. (Author/LH)
