Guidelines for After-School Workshops: A Manual for Teacher Trainers.
New York City Board of Education, Brooklyn, NY. Office of Personnel.
Because of the large increase in the number of new teachers and because of the importance of insuring disadvantaged children the best possible quality integrated education, an after-school workshop program for the training of these teachers is being offered, funded under PL 89-10, the Elementary and Secondary Education Act. These workshops will supplement and enrich ongoing training programs. It is hoped that such training will be continued from now on for new teachers entering our schools. The program of after-school workshops for new teachers has several distinguishing features. Firstly, it is a decentralized program in which assistant principals develop procedures under the direction of their principals and field superintendents. In this way, workshops can be adapted most effectively to the needs of the school, the community, the participants, and the pupils. Secondly, it is a practical program. The teacher trainers are experienced staff members who know the realities of classroom instruction, routines, and relationships and who can transmit these realities to their newer colleagues. The workshop supervisors are assistant principals who are equally aware of what is most necessary in teacher orientation and training. The initiative, energy, and stimulation of these teacher trainers and workshop supervisors are the factors that will make the program function. (Author/JM)
