Blosser, Patricia E.
More than 40 studies and reports were reviewed in this paper. Reviewed under Inservice Programs and Activities are: Local Programs, (e.g. Flint Hills Elementary Science Project), Institute Programs (e.g. NSF Summer Institutes) and other Inservice activities (e.g. Eastern Regional Institute for Education). The writer reviewed evaluative reports and studies of these programs with reference to (1) teacher content background, (2) changes in teacher attitudes in behaviors, and (3) changes in student achievement. Also reviewed are research studies and reports related to (1) implementation of inservice activities and programs, (2) teaching competencies, curriculum development, and inservice education, and (3) teacher attitudes, behaviors, characteristics. Three general recommendations were made concerning reports and studies of inservice education activities, and fifteen specific recommendations were made concerning (1) the development of local inservice programs, (2) teacher attitudes, behaviors, characteristics, and (3) the adoption, acceptance, and implementation of curriculum projects.
