Research Institute for Public School Curriculum Personnel. Final Report.
Curry, John F.
Thirty Texas public school curriculum personnel participated in a 9-week summer research training institute at North Texas State University in 1966. Courses offered were:(1) problem identification in curriculum revision, (2) research methods and design, and (3) evaluative procedures. Several activities were designed to familiarize students with computer center and library facilities. Students were informed about researchable problems and needs in varying curriculum areas by staff members and resource personnel. Difficulty was encountered in attempting to acquaint them with sources of funds for educational research, but each trainee formulated a research problem on which he planned to work in his school system during the coming year. Staff members and most participants felt that the institute was profitable. Among changes recommended for proposed future institutes are that more emphasis be placed on handling statistics via automatic calculators, that field trips be more carefully structured, and that there be more time for selecting trainees from a wider geographical area. Appended to this report are 16 pages of publicity materials, trainee record forms, and the program schedule. (JS)
