Handbook for Staff Development Workshops in Indian Education.
Center for Applied Linguistics, Arlington, VA.
The concern of Indian communities for quality education and their insistence on community control of their schools makes school staff development vital. The strategy for staff development outlined in this handbook gives a community one way to make an instant response to staff needs. Workshops place school staff in a stronger position to work with students and communities and their educational problems. Nine chapters cover the following topics: (1) Why a workshop for staff development in Indian education is needed - advantages and alternatives; (2) Planning, establishing needs, objectives, format, proposal and budget; (3) Site selection; (4) Participant selection-qualifications, workshop continuity, application procedures; (5) Selecting the staff - types of staff, qualifications, resident and visiting staff; (6) Workshop content: language and language arts; Indian culture and education; curriculum and materials development; enrichment areas; place of linguistics in workshop curriculum; (7) Workshop schedule; (8) Resource materials; and (9) Evaluating the workshop. Appendices furnish information on interest groups and resource centers, questionnaires for workshop evaluation, and guidelines for preparation and certification of teachers of bilingual/bicultural education.
