Model for Developing an In-Service Teacher Workshop To Help Multilingual and Multicultural Students.
Kachaturoff, Grace; Romatowski, Jane A.
This is a model for designing an inservice teacher workshop to assist teachers working with multicultural students. The basic assumption underlying the model is universities and schools need to work cooperatively to provide experiences for improving the quality of teaching by increasing awareness of educational issues and situations and by introducing innovations in approaches and techniques substantiated by research. The design model developed consisted of three major components: (1) identification of needs, (2) planning and organization of experiences and resources, and (3) evaluation. After the needs were identified, the workshop was organized into five phases: (1) an introductory session; (2) a simulation to involve participants; (3) a session highlighting techniques to use with students acquiring English as a second language; (4) small group discussions and debriefing sessions; and (5) the presentation of filmstrips, videotapes, and films related to the theme of the workshop. Evaluation indicated that the design of the workshop did help the participants to deal more effectively with the challenge of teaching in a multicultural, multilingual society. (DMT)
