The Teacher Enrichment/Awareness Curriculum Hierarchy (TEACH). Model for Teacher Inservice Training and Professional Growth in American Public School Education: Rural Schools.
The Teacher Enrichment/Awareness Curriculum Hierarchy (TEACH) stresses the interactions among and interrelatedness of subject matter (content and skills), teaching methods, the organization of the classroom instructional process, and instructional materials and resources. The model presented is used to help social studies teachers use a global approach; however, the program can be used to train teachers in any subject area. In the TEACH program, teachers review a K-12 global education curriculum guide and identify the knowledge, skills, and attitudes to be taught at each grade level. A curriculum outline is developed. Teachers then work closely with the school district's staff development committee and design a personalized plan for continued professional growth. Inservice activities are designed to train teachers in the various content and skills areas and to help them develop appropriate learning activities. A sample teacher plan is provided. The social studies supervisor's role in the inservice program is discussed, and ways in which the National Council for the Social Studies publication "In Search of a Scope and Sequence for Social Studies" can provide an organizational basis for TEACH are examined. (Introductory pages present the statement and purpose of global education.) (RM)
