Kimple, James; And Others
This document contains three papers describing the South Brunswick Township (Kindall Park, N.J.) Public Schools inservice and preservice program based on a training design which includes group dynamics or human relations training combined with a summer laboratory school. The first paper "A Three-Year Organizational Development with a Total School Staff" describes and analyzes the effects of each phase of the program (1967-70) in a middle school in which teachers participated in an experimental summer school (experimental teaching in the morning; dynamics, planning, evaluation, and skill training in the afternoon) and then in followup activities throughout the school year which included T Groups, problem-solving, and skill training in goal setting, diagnosis, planning, evaluation, and other decisionmaking areas. The second paper describes and analyzes the undergraduate teacher intern program in which future teachers participate in a summer program involving human relations training and teaching in the experimental summer schools and then in a full semester of teaching, consultation, observation, and seminar work on teams composed of interns, teachers, and college supervisor. The final brief paper summarizes system changes and p program innovation, listing changes in curriculum, schools, and personnel. (JS)
