Teacher Training In Inquiry by a Performance Contractor: A Unique Experiment In Jacksonville, Florida.
Herrin, Alan R.; And Others
This study, conducted by a research team from the Behavioral Sciences Center of Nova University, investigated three features of the inservice teacher training program, connected with Project Impact in Jacksonville, Florida, which are not found in most projects involving performance contractors. First, Duval County was the first district to prepare their own Request for Proposal. Second, the contractor agreed to meet the conditions, stated by the Duval County Schools, that the teacher training program emphasize the use of inquiry techniques in teaching and that the subsequent teaching of 300 target students would be by the inquiry method. Third, this project marked the first attempt by a contractor to train locally-employed teachers to take the responsibilities for the classroom instruction. The data collected and analyzed showed the effects of the inservice program and raised several interesting questions which are listed in the study. A nine-item bibliography and appendixes are included. (Author/MJM)
