Development of Programmed Inservice Training on Dialects.
Maxwell, John; And Others
Development of this 6-part inservice program making major use of programed instruction began in 1969 with the objective of modifying classroom teacher behavior in the direction of individualizing the instruction of students learning to control standard English. A review of literature on dialects gave some guidance toward determining the appropriate set of teacher behaviors needed for individualizing the usage curriculum. These behaviors include the ability to understand and write phonetic transcriptions of dialect speech, to prepare a list of nonstandard features found in these dialects, to prepare an individual curriculum for each child based on his type of nonstandard speech, and to select and organize commercially available materials on specific features of usage for the needs of individual students. Final results on whether the teacher trained with these materials can achieve the desired behaviors are expected in summer 1970. After further testing and revision, it is expected that the program will be made generally available in the fall of 1970. Further research is planned on the effect on student behavior of a program of individualized instruction in usage. (RT)
