Supportive Training for Inexperienced and New Teachers (STINT). Part I.
Fox, David J.; And Others
This document is an evaluative description of the program conducted by the New York City Board of Education during the 1968-69 school year. Opening chapters describe the two-phase evaluation design (descriptive and qualitative) and outline the program in which an initial group of 152 master teachers plus 100 more added in Febraury were assigned as teacher trainers to 229 schools where each worked with a maximum number of nine new teachers, providing demonstration lessons, assisting cooperative planning, advising on implementing curriculum, guiding in disciplinary procedures, and helping to establish classroom routines. The six chapters presenting results of the evaluative study deal with characteristics and role of the teacher trainer; evaluation of classroom functioning including teacher ratings, teacher-pupil interaction, and teacher characteristics; scope of the program and its overt impact on children and teachers including children's achievement and attendance and teacher attendance; and perceptions of the program by district coordinators and principals and by STINT teacher trainers. Findings are summarized. Conclusions are drawn which indicate that the program was successful, and recommendations for its continuation and expansion are listed. Appendixes include the seven evaluation instruments used (interview guides and questionnaires) and the manual entitled "Guidelines for Teacher Trainers." (JS)
