Experienced Teacher Fellowship Program, 1969-70.
Resnick, Harold S.; And Others
The 1969-70 Experienced Teacher Fellowship program (ExTFP) actively sought teams of two or three teachers from the inner city areas of the 25 largest cities in the United States. Twenty-four Fellows were selected to develop a model program designed to orient, upgrade and prepare a nucleus of urban teachers in evolving technologies for a broad-based industrial arts program. The 9-month program, which resulted in an M.Ed. Degree, was designed so that each Fellow would (1) become competent in those aspects of American industry which embrace either Industrial Materials and Processes or Energy and Propulsion Systems, and (2) develop, field test and evaluate the curriculum materials needed for an application of these evolving technologies in the schools systems. Observers noted that several changes instigated in this year's program improved this third ExTFP. A more complete evaluation of this project covering 3 years of operations is planned for the near future. Evaluation of the second year (1968-69) is available as ED 038 521, and the instructional packages developed during the year are available as ED 040 303. (CD)
