A Report on the Baltimore City Public Schools' Workshop for Teachers of Disadvantaged Vocational Students.
Gardner, Albert H.
The document is a report on the goals, activities, and consultant topics for a three-week vocational education workshop for 29 teachers of disadvantaged students in Baltimore. The workshop, in session five hours each day for lectures, discussion groups, consultant visits, and individual work sessions and conferences, had eight goals for teachers (becoming sensitive to problems of disadvantaged students, recognizing more than one value system for behavior, studying applications of innovative educational techniques, using effective instructional methods for slow learners, following procedures to minimize causes of discipline problems, developing instruction units to assist vocational school students, generating cooperation for a greater relationship between shop and academic studies, and writing program objectives behaviorally). Participants' evaluations of workshop goals, teaching staff, and resource personnel, rated on a four point scale (excellent, good, fair, poor), are tabulated and discussed. Fifteen recommendations to be used in planning other workshops and plans for follow-up sessions conclude the report. Appendixes list workshop participants and resource personnel. (NH)
