EPDA [Education Professions Development Act] B-2 Workshops. 1st Year Teacher, Master Teacher, Administrator.
Illinois State Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction, Springfield.; Springfield School District 186, IL.; Western Illinois Univ., Macomb.
This three-chapter document concerns the problem of finding competent individuals to teach in the community. Chapter 1 describes an Education Professions Development Act (EPDA) project involving lay citizens, professional teachers, students, and educational authorities gathered together to pinpoint the necessities for competent teacher performance, the result of which was a listing of performance-based criteria. Chapter 2 concerns a workshop for local district administrators, based on the development and use of performance-based criteria. Part of their task was to examine performance and develop guidelines concerning the role of an administrator in dealing with the college of education, the university student participant, and faculty members selected as supervisors. Chapter 3 the Master Teacher Workshop, covers the tentative responsibilities of the university, the master teacher, the student teacher, and the resident coordinator. An overview and schedule of the EPDA Summer Workshop for first-year teachers follow. During the workshop, 30 first-year teachers met to define inservice goals directed toward alteration and improvement of that program. Twenty-one goals were isolated, divided, and structured in a program development worksheet containing the defined goals and subtitles, made up of the district program design with a narrative description, resources, and required facilities. As a final step, evaluation strategy was designed, including criterion measures, data collection procedures, and scoring procedures. (JCW)
