Affecting Teacher Awareness and Attitudes: An In-Service Program Strategy for Rural Schools.
Peters, Richard O.
In July 1973, the New Hampshire School Union 58 began operation of its Experimental School (ES) Project. One of 10 projects nationwide which make up Project Rural, ES's aim was to develop "a community-centered school" which utilized available human and natural resources to foster positive attitudes toward learning, provided individuals with basic skills which enable them to realize personal goals, and utilized community resource facilities as a basis for lifetime learning opportunities. Project components were administration, in-house level I evaluation, and instruction. There were 3 instructional components: career/vocational education, language arts, and environmental/outdoor education, as well as adult education. An in-service training program was conducted to provide practicing educators with the opportunities to enrich their learning and to expand their awareness of new practices and techniques in project related components. Since May 1975, a teacher recertification staff development program has been operated by Union 58. The ES project's in-service workshops, minishops, skillshops, visitations, and staff training activities complimented the local program and provided teachers with the opportunity to gain clock hours of credit toward their professional recertification.
