Summary and Evaluation of EPDA-B2 Project 70.01 at the Tennessee Appalachia Educational Cooperative July 1, 1970 through August 31, 1971.
Saffels, Francis L.; Holt, William W.
Five teacher and teacher aid training program workshops held during summer and fall 1970, and winter, spring, and summer 1971 are evaluated. The subjects covered in the workshops included simulation, microteaching, role differentiation, classroom control, audiovisual instruction, learning theory, content areas, drugs, individualized instruction, and sociocultural factors and underachievers. Participants were teachers, potential teachers, aides, and in-service directors. An overall evaluation showed that teachers and aides agreed that the session on drugs was the most useful, and that those on microteaching, elementary language arts, communication skills, and sensitivity training were very useful. Teachers reported profiting from sessions on individualized instruction, while aides preferred training with audiovisual equipment and in phonics. Forty-five teachers and prospective teachers earned 414 quarter hours credit, and 38 aides earned 297 quarter hours credit. The document includes a summary of participants' reactions, an example of the interest inventory used to help determine the course of each workshop, examples of evaluation forms used at the end of each workshop, participant information, and data on specific skill improvement and attitude change.
