This collection of 44 program descriptions, compiled from reports solicited from directors throughout the nation, is intended as a reference source on a variety of alternative approaches to the training of various educational personnel. Each entry includes listing of collaborating agencies, director's address, and funding sources (most were at least partially funded through the U.S. Office of Education). Eight descriptions are in the "Basic Studies" category including programs for teachers of English as a second language, industrial arts, math and science, music, and social studies; several focus on disadvantaged groups. Nine are in the "Special Projects" category, several on specific training techniques (e.g., Mobilabs, minicourse, team internship). Three report Teacher Corps programs for specific trainee groups. One of two descriptions fall into each of these categories: Early Childhood, Educational Administration, Trainers of Teacher Trainers, Special Education, Support Personnel, Teacher Improvement through Curriculum Development, Teacher Leadership Development, and Vocational and Technical Education. An index provides further breakdown into specific project focuses or approaches, e.g., differentiated staffing, urban and inner-city, community experience, sensitivity training, media. (JS)
