Experienced Teacher Fellowship Program. Final Report, 1968-69.
Resnick, Harold S.; And Others
The 1968-69 Experienced Teacher Fellowship Program (ExTFP) in industrial arts was designed to orient and upgrade 24 urban teachers for a broad-base industrial arts program as described in the Galaxy Approach for Occupational Education. The program was organized to: (1) provide in-depth courses in technical areas, (2) provide short-term intensive field experiences, (3) extend learning processes, (4) provide familiarity with sociological factors, (5) develop course materials, (6) evaluate the adequacy and quality of preparation, (7) experiment with and field test innovative methods, and (8) provide full-time summer industrial experience. The group of 24 fellows was divided into two equal groups, one to study industrial materials and processes, while the other group concentrated on energy and propulsion systems. Evaluation instruments at the end of each term indicated a strongly positive reaction from faculty and participants. A follow-up evaluation will place special emphasis on their curriculum development, increased leadership activities within the school and state, and any change in position. (GR)
