Focus on Effective Teaching/Staff Development: District Adoption of the Changing Teacher Practice Study, San Diego City Schools.
Leighty, Carol A.; Courter, Linden
Interactive research in the area of staff development at the building site level has been conducted recently by the Research and Development Center of the University of Texas, Austin. In this research study staff developers, principals, and resource teachers are given training, research information, and implementation strategies to improve instruction and to become more effective staff developers. Following the initial study conducted by the Texas Research and Development Center, San Diego Unified School District (California) adopted the program for all school administrators, grades K-9. This paper describes the adaptations made by the district to ensure site replication. Topics included are: effective teaching behaviors, staff developer behaviors, and change strategies. District adoption also includes time on task activities, cost effectiveness, and district training procedures. Workshop agendas are appended. (Author/JMK)
