The Chicago Satellite, as a member of the EPDA Midwest Center Consortium, sought to create the EPDA's "New Professional" by retraining in-service teachers and school staff.The University of Illinois at Chicago Circle's College of Education and the Department of Educational Psychology at the Urbana campus are working in conjunction with Chicago School District #9 and the Midwest Center at Indiana University to develop and test a model aimed at improving the educational atmosphere of a large inner city high school. A collaborative project was conceived wherein the universities, school district, and community get together to find new ways of cooperative planning which would produce classrooms and curricula that would meet the needs of their students. The model employed attempts to train a new professional able to serve the student client as well as the system client. The major objectives were: (1) development of new degree programs at the university level, (2) development of experimental pilot courses which could identify and teach newly needed skills, and (3) development of courses related to the practical problems of inner-city schools. A second set of objectives included organizational development, staff development, and program development. The fully-developed program was shown to have considerable impact. (Author/NG)
