Smith, William F., Comp.; And Others
The in-service workshop reported in this document was part of a staff development program for teachers in 39 elementary and middle schools in Jefferson Parish. It was funded under a grant from the United States Office of Education under provisions of the Emergency School Assistance Program. Each workshop consisted of one day of large group presentations followed by small group discussions for each group of teachers. Keynote talks included: "The program--rationale, descriptions, objectives," W. F. Smith; "Techniques to aid motivation among multi-cultural and multi-racial groups," Charlotte Brooks; "Sociological implications of desegregation," J. J. Salamone; "Discipline in desegregated schools," C. Thomas; and, "Communications in desegregated schools," Nancy Bruce. After large group sessions, participants divided into nine discussion groups; each met throughout the day with the same consultants who served as resource persons and interaction facilitators. After each large group presentation, that general session keynote speaker met with a small discussion group, in order to continue the dialogue-question session that concluded some large group sessions. Consultant small group resources personnel summarized the small group sessions, and completed an evaluation form for each session. Workshop participants, teachers and principals completed a brief participant evaluation form. (Author/JM)
