Man: A Course of Study Teacher Training and Dissemination Project. Final Report.
Central Connecticut State Coll., New Britain. Regional Center for the Improvement of Instruction in Elementary Social Studies.
The purpose of the Regional Center's 15 month project was to strengthen the professional training of teachers, improve elementary social studies instruction, provide for the successful implementation of new social studies curricula (Man: A Course of Study), and to create a setting for research in problems of teacher training and curriculum innovation. This report is divided into six sections: 1) Teacher Training, both inservice and preservice, the former consisting of two summer workshops for teachers who would be teaching the new curriculum and training colleagues to do so; 2) consultation, covering the project's efforts to help implement the curriculum in Northeastern school districts; 3) Dissemination, discussing publicity of the center's activities and information about the curriculum; 4) Evaluation; 5) Personal observations; and, 6) Appendices, which include institute brochures, samples of correspondence, institute schedules and lists of participants and leaders, and letters of support.
