Residential Academic-Year Programs for Prospective Unit Leaders, Building Principals, and Reading Staff Teachers in Multiunit Schools--Elementary. Report from the Project on Multiunit Schools--Elementary. Technical Report No. 267.
Klausmeier, Herbert J.; Fruth, Marvin J.
This technical report provides summary information and evaluation of the activities that were carried out in the institutionalization phase of the implementation of the Individually Guided Education (IGE) Project in the Multiunit School--Elementary (MUS-E). The institutionalization phase, the last of four, is defined as the introduction of IGE concepts and practices into undergraduate courses for prospective IGE teachers and into graduate programs for unit leaders and IGE principals. Three teacher education institutions developed academic year programs for IGE principals, unit leaders, and staff reading teachers. Federal funds were appropriated through the Wisconsin R & D Center for Cognitive Learning to the three institutions to aid in the development of the programs, and a limited number of fellowships, including tuition and stipends, were offered at each institution. The program developed at each institution, while not identical, followed the same basic four step model. The first half of the program was devoted to the acquisition of new knowledge, and the second half emphasized actual experience in IGE/MUS-E implementation. In general, the five academic year programs offered at the three institutions proved successful. It is felt that if the strengths of the various programs were combined, a stronger model of institutionalization of IGE/MUS-E could be developed. (HMD)
