Teachers As Students: Report on the Experienced Teacher Fellowship Program, 1967-1968.
Crockett, Walter H.; And Others
The Program reported here was designed to help improve the quality of education in the nations elementary and secondary schools. It pursued this goal in two ways: first, by helping selected, potentially influential experienced teache to pursue full-time graduate education in specially planned courses of studies; second, by fostering and strengthening in colleges and universities an increased concern for the training of teachers. Two kinds of data were gathered: 1) responses to questionnaires that were administered at the end of 1967-68 academic year to all of the 1,498 fellows in 70 programs; and 2) data from the intensive study of three selected programs involving teachers of disadvantaged youth, secondary history teachers, and secondary social science teachers. The data are presented in four parts: 1) summary of the results of the study; 2) Backgrounds and educational values and beliefs of the fellows; 3) analysis of perceived effectiveness of the individual programs and the correlates of effectiveness; and, 4) implications for teacher training and for higher education.
