In-Service Teacher Education in a Tri-Ethnic Community: A Participant-Observer Study.
Ulibarri, Mari-Luci
An urgent need was felt for broader implementation of processes similar to those indicated in this study to help reorient teachers effectively, quickly, and as painlessly as possible so that they can better meet the needs of the Spanish surnamed and the Indian Americans enrolled in public schools. Six prime questions were involved during the implementation of this in-service education model in a tri-ethnic community: Will there be satisfication with traditional curriculum when cultural differences are understood? Is it possible to develop an awareness of a person's own needs which may be in conflict with the student's needs? To what extent will self-evaluation help in understanding techniques and methods used with students? Will needs for special materials, techniques, and community involvement be apparent and understood by the school personnel? Will an in-service program be able to initiate required curriculum changes? What are the results of the total project? In summarizing, the author emphasizes that meaningful social changes in school programming activities can occur. A base-line direction for change can be established; a project such as the model described can set such a base-line program of recommendations. The author feels that personnel in schools with students from minority groups should know about the processes described here. (AMM)
