Role of the Team Leader (Correctional Education Program).
The role of team leaders in leadership and management of instruction for children in portal learning centers is discussed. These centers are designed to meet needs and interests of highly mobile, nonconfronting youths unable to accept traditional classroom routine. The current project is working with the development of open environments for learning through learning centers that allow students to begin at their own level, create from their own experiences, learn at their own pace, and allow for immediate success patterns. Program objectives are stated and criteria and characteristics for assessment of the portal learning centers are discussed. Characteristics are listed that define the role of team leaders in relation to interns and other adults. The team leader's role is also discussed in terms of performance and in terms of a plan for institutional change, which includes career opportunities and an instructional program. (PD)
