Tennyson, W. Wesley; Meyer, Warren G.
This pilot training project conducted during the summer of 1967 was Phase I of a two-phase training program. Phase I (ED 016 805) was conducted during the summer of 1966 and provided a group of 30 distributive education teacher-coordinators with distributive occupational experience in two business firms. The purpose of Phase II was to increase teacher effectiveness in encouraging self-exploration and developing judgement and decision-making skills in students. General approaches followed were (1) consideration of instructional content and methods appropriate to the career development of the distributive education student, and (2) group experiences designed to focus on the career and personal development of the coordinators and distributive teachers enrolled in the workshop. The instructional program was conducted within a 5-week schedule and consisted of three courses: (1) didactic instruction, 25 class hours, (2) group process, 30 class hours, and (3) integrative seminar, 35 class hours. Fiftee n graduating seniors from local schools were selected for the demonstration class. The program was evaluated through: (1) studies of behavioral and performance change during the time the teacher was enrolled in the training program, (2) the effect on the career and self-development of the participant in the demonstration class, and (3) the quality of teaching materials that were developed.
