The Iowa Governance Packet. Workbook and Resource Book.
Iowa State Education Association, Des Moines.
The first part of this learning package is a workbook designed to help teachers understand the concept of self-governance and appreciate the position that professional self-regulation is necessary to serve educational goals and teacher needs. Five units explore different aspects of the issue through pretest questions and answers, instructional objectives, assigned readings, role-playing exercises, brain-storming exercises, and other assigned tasks. The units cover (1) the meaning of self-governance; (2) arguments in opposition to self-governance; (3) self-governance in Iowa and elsewhere; (4) the relationship between self-governance and teacher needs, commitment, and accountability; and (5) the attitudes of various sectors of the educational community toward self-governance. A final test is provided to assess the reader's knowledge of the material covered. Although the goal of the packets is to present self-governance in the most positive light, opposing arguments are also explored. The second part of the learning package is a resource book which contains newspaper clippings, articles, and stories to be read in conjunction with the assignments in the workbook. (CD)
