Migrant Education Training Program.
Morales, Maria E.
In the summer of 1981, 92 participants of 2 Migrant Personnel Training Projects, 20 participants of a local school district Migrant Education Summer Program, 14 participants of a university class studying school supervision and administration, and 209 participants of 7 summer Migrant Personnel Training Institutes were surveyed, using the Migrant Education Special Project Survey Form, to determine the training needs of Texas migrant education personnel. The Survey Form consisted of 21 items which gave the participants' an opportunity to express their feelings of competence or lack of competence in 6 major areas of study: instruction; interpersonal skills; learning (principles and styles); classroom management; evaluation (tests and measurement); and any additional topics named by the participants. Findings indicated that 110 respondents felt they needed skills for teaching reading, 108 needed skills for teaching language, and 126 needed skills for teaching math; 191 respondents felt competent in their ability to motivate students; 97 respondents felt they needed further development in interpersonal skills; 71 respondents felt they needed further skills in keeping discipline; 196 respondents felt competent in interpreting tests; 189 respondents felt competent in using test results; and 249 respondents felt competent in grading tests.
