Inservice Education Programs to Improve Teaching Competence. Selected Papers. ATE Bulletin No. 39.
Wright, R. E., Ed.
This document contains five essays which explore the idea that increased teacher awareness and knowledge of human interaction will promote public acknowledgement and acceptance of (a) improved self-concept, (b) desire for learning, and (c) respect for others on the part of students, and establish these behaviors as accountable curriculum goals in every classroom. "Inservice Education and the Silent Curriculum" discusses human interaction processes created during instruction. "An Individualized Inservice Program Model for Competency Development" provides a model for defining competencies and developing a sound theoretically based inservice program. "Implementing an Open Model for Inservice Competency Development" presents a program that demands evaluation of the silent curriculum through self-evaluation as well as objective and subjective data gathering. "Bring Your Campus to Us" defines teacher competence and data-gathering procedures based on criterion-referenced scales. "Mini-Bus for Mini-Session for Maxi-Purpose" describes a specific example of taking the campus to the field in an effort to keep up-to-date on all methods employed in helping teachers improve instruction.
