Updating the Process and Content of Teacher Education Courses to Reach Less-Advantaged Adults in Metropolitan Areas. Final Report.
Stevenson, William W.; And Others
A 2-week institute was held to orient participants to the world of the disadvantaged and to give them ideas on methods of training teachers for disadvantaged adults. The 77 participants--including teacher educators, teachers, community workers, state department of education personnel, and counselors--attended lectures by consultants from the School of Occupational and Adult Education at Oklahoma State University, the State Department of Vocational and Technical Education, and the Area Manpower Institutes for Development of Staff, and participated in small-group discussions. An important feature of the institute was a live-in arrangement whereby participants spent four nights in the home of a disadvantaged family. Most participants evaluated the institute favorably. In addition, a 4-month followup found that most participants subsequently engaged in one or more activities designed to improve education for the disadvantaged. (The report includes lists of participants and consultants, a schedule of daily activities, and some of the evaluation forms developed.) (RT)
