The UNC-W/Pender County Teacher Corps Project. 1979-1982: A Descriptive Report.
This report documents the history of the Teacher Corps project initiated by the University of North Carolina at Wilmington with schools in Pender County (North Carolina). The project involved the cooperation of the university's school of education and three local schools, which were the recipients of teacher intern services and served as sites for graduate courses for teachers and staff development activities. Part I of this report presents the background of the project from its inception to policy planning and program implementation. The use of teacher interns in local school districts and staff development and community council activities are delineated. Part II contains a description of events occurring during the third year of the project, including problems created by the termination of the National Teacher Corps Program. Following a section dealing with project governance, roles and activities of the project's teacher interns are discussed, and their suggestions and observations are noted. Thirteen project goals are introduced along with a brief evaluation of their results. Four appendixes contain a sample of a pamphlet encouraging parent participation published by the project, a faculty needs assessment instrument, a model of the project staff development plan, and a community survey instrument used to determine parents' concerns about schooling.
