Bread and Butterflies: Evaluation of the IEBN-DPI [Iowa Educational Broadcasting Network--Department of Public Instruction] 1974-75 Inservice Training Workshops.
The document presents a discussion and evaluation of the training workshop program developed by the Iowa Educational Broadcasting Network and the Iowa State Department of Public Instruction to help teachers incorporate the Bread and Butterflies television series on career development into fourth, fifth, and sixth grade curricula. The Bread and Butterflies series is described as a quality product with extensive training aids, including a comprehensive curriculum guide, individual program analysis, before-viewing readiness plan, program summaries, and suggestions for classroom discussion and activities. Workshop goals included informing teachers of the program and its content, incorporating it into existing curricula throughout Iowa, and fostering a positive teacher attitude. A one-day, inservice, training workshop was developed for 14 regions of Iowa. A group of teacher trainers selected by region from school systems throughout the State received the training and, in turn, provided inservice training to faculties in their respective school systems. Evaluation was made of the teacher training workshops, career development attitude of upper elementary teachers, and cost effectiveness. A detailed discussion of evaluation findings is presented, and tables and figures supplement the material. (LH)
