There are three major phases of this competency-based, humanistically oriented adaptation plan for the Teacher Corps program. The first is the adaptation of the national Teacher Corps program to the local Teacher Corps program. This requires adapting the national literature to realistically fit local needs, adapting the national interest and interpretation of a given curriculum to the local program clientele, and involving teachers in a community program that integrates the school into the community as a positive social agency. In the second major phase the Teacher Corps program as conceived by the college or university is adapted to the Teacher Corps program as conceived by the local education agency. This requires the two institutions to share responsibilities; for example, the local school can selected from intern candidates who have passed an in-depth selection process and who have requested to work at that particular school site. In the third major phase the Teacher Corps program is adapted to the institutions of higher education through meeting required standards and striving to ensure that everyone feels involved in the decision-making process. In conclusion, the effectiveness of the change process depends on people, and national programs should consist of broad guidelines within which people can adapt their own programs. (PD)
