The Development, Implementation, and Evaluation of a Comprehensive Substitute Teacher Program in Eastern Henrico County.
Nelson, Henry L.; And Others
A survey of the district's elementary principals and teachers and of the substitutes working at two elementary schools indicated that substitute teachers should be evaluated, that an inservice program for substitutes was needed to help provide information and direction that could improve their overall effectiveness, and that there was strong support for the development of a handbook that would outline basic procedures that substitutes could rely on and follow wherever they worked in the county. In response to what was learned from the surveys, the authors designed and conducted an informational workshop for substitutes in the elementary schools in Eastern Henrico County (Virginia), devised and developed a handbook for substitutes, and ascertained whether the information workshop, procedural suggestions, handbook, and evaluation guidelines helped improve the performance of the substitutes. Appendixes contain the survey instruments, evaluation checklists, and the handbook developed. (Author/IRT)
