The Principal and Staff Development in the Elementary School. Princeps Series: Developing the Role of the Elementary School Principal as an Educational Leader. Occasional Paper No. 4.
Klopf, Gordon J.
This booklet is intended to provide elementary school principals with some understanding of the concepts of adult learning and development and an awareness of some of the processes and techniques for conducting a staff development program. It is not, however, intended to serve as a complete training program in itself. Among the topics discussed in the various chapters are the following: planning a staff development program, understanding adult development, structures for staff development activities, small group interaction processes and approaches for staff development, experiential activities in staff development programs, and evaluating a staff development program. The appendix contains a fairly extensive bibliography of relevant publications. (Author/JG)
