Teacher Role Group Response on Special Training Provided by Projects and Networks in 1975-1976.
This paper is a summative review of responses received from teachers who participated in Teacher Corps projects during 1975-1976. The survey sought to determine involvement by teachers in Teacher Corps training, planning, evaluation, work-related activities, network activities, and in decision-making about training events. In addition, teachers were asked to rate individual training events they attended during the year and indicate three things that should be modified to make Teacher Corps projects more effective. The survey elicited 54 responses, most of them indicating that: (1) teachers did not feel parity in decision-making; (2) they did not feel training programs were planned, implemented, or evaluated by them or for them; (3) they confused network and university support; (4) they sought improvement of skills to work with interns and other teachers towards improving teaching skills, curriculum, and use of the school plant; (5) they felt projects were not planned, implemented, or evaluated with them; (6) they reported increased expertise in use of special education, reading, math, and other specific curriculum materials, and techniques in classrooms; (7) some expressed concern about community and parental involvement; and (8) a few were aware of the new demonstration focus in Teacher Corps projects.
