Describing Typical Interventions.
Ross, John A.; And Others
Six papers, which comprise Part II of "Studies in Curriculum Decision Making," explore: (1) actions taken by those in nonteaching roles to facilitate teacher effectiveness; (2) how helpful these actions are likely to be; and (3) what individuals in nonteaching roles can do to assist teacher effectiveness. Interviews and questionnaires obtained information on functions and roles of: (1) school principals; (2) consultants; (3) area superintendents; (4) university faculty; (5) developers and users of commercially and locally produced curriculum materials; and (6) Ministry of Education personnel. Discussion in the papers on the role and influence of nonteaching change agents, curriculum managers, and external change agents point to the need for improvement of intervention strategies. (JD)
