The Fate of Ten Scientist-Science Educator Teams Three Years After Participation in a Leadership Training Program.
Rowe, Mary Budd
Ten two-person teams made up the primary target population for the Leadership Training Program (LTP) described in this report. The back home activities of the team members were studied for nearly three years following the LTP. A brief resume of the design and conduct of the LTP is given. Training of the college teams took three weeks and included the following ingredients: approximately 30 hours of what might be called a social science laboratory; the training by the college teams of public school teams consisting of administrators and teachers who were to implement either Science a Process Approach or the Science Curriculum Improvement Study the following fall; micro-teaching of ghetto children; and video tape analysis of teaching. Data on post LTP activities by participants were obtained through questionnaires, interviews, site visits, tape recorded reports, group meetings of participants, joint participation in other programs, and talks with administrators. Through the natural migrations that mark college people's lives, some of the teams broke up as individuals moved to new institutions. Each individual is followed for a period in the new setting to determine whether he transfers any of the relevant behaviors connected with plannned change. (Author/PR)
