A Study of Selected, Nationwide Inservice Education Programs for Secondary School Teachers of English, Grades 7-12, from Fall 1969 through the Academic Year 1971-72.
Catalani, Anne Ramundo
This study was designed to discover the extent to which school districts provided inservice education for their secondary school teachers of English from the fall of 1969 through the 1971-72 academic year, to determine if inservice consisted of continuous, process-oriented growth experiences structured primarily to benefit the teaching of English in the classroom, and to identify promising practices among inservice education programs by evaluating them according to the recommended criteria in nine areas: inception, organization, administration, objectives, personnel roles, content, funding, evaluation, and follow-up. A questionnaire was prepared based on information received from a letter of inquiry to state education departments in 50 states and the District of Columbia and on recommendations in the literature on inservice education. A questionnaire was mailed to every person on each of two mailing lists: (1) selected state supervisors of English and reading and (2) a sampling of public school superintendents. The principal findings indicated the inservice practices generally followed the criteria suggested in related literature mainly in organization, administration, funding, and evaluation. Variance was noted for objectives, personnel roles, content, and follow-up. (Author/WR)
