Seawell Project; A Model Language Arts/Reading Center. Evaluation Report.
Troy, Joan B.; Peck, Hugh I.
A joint project by four major groups of people--the National Council of Teachers of English, the United States Office of Education, the Learning Institute of North Carolina, and the Chapel Hill (North Carolina) City Schools--was developed at the Seawell Elementary School in Chapel Hill to provide a series of inservice and on-the-job training programs for elementary teachers and administrators in the language arts/reading field. The total Seawell resources--plant, administration, faculty, and children--were used as the major base for inservice education of North Carolina teachers, with nearly 170 teachers from ten satellite schools enabled to participate. This document, summarizing the effort, provides chapters on the evaluation design and strategy, a description of the "Seawell Experience," analyses of instructional and field services components, an analysis of workshop evaluation, and a summary and description of accomplishments of the program. Appendixes include the Seawell Project Teacher Assessment Battery and Formative Evaluation Instruments. (JM)
