Teacher Corps Graduates in Highly Innovative Roles in Education: A Follow-Up Study. Final Report, Phase II.
Marsh, David D.; Lyons, Margaret F.
This document further analyzes a two-year Teacher Corps study which was conducted by Pacific Training and Technical Assistance Corporation for the U.S. Office of Education. The results of the first and second years of study have been reported elsewhere. This volume presents the results of a further analysis of data collected in the first year of the study dealing with the relationship between intern background characteristics and Teacher Corps program characteristics, and the teaching skills and attitudes of interns at the end of their two years of training. The goals of this study are: (a) to provide information that could serve as a bais for redirecting efforts to recruit interns, selecting new Teacher Corps projects, or providing technical assistance to projects; (b) to provide information that could be used to identify special strengths or weaknesses at any one project site and, consequently, to suggest the need for special recruiting procedures for interns or for technical assistance efforts; (c) to further explore the relationship between teacher background, Teacher Corps program characteristics as related to the teaching skills, and attitudes of interns at the end of their two years of training; and (d) to answer management-oriented questions regarding the development of effective Teacher Corps projects and the assessment of the quality and effectiveness of the projects. (A large section of the document is devoted to tables illustrating the interns' background and Teacher Corps program characteristics.) (JS)
