Utilization of Retired Teachers as Volunteers.
Walton, Mildred L.
The purpose of this practicum is to develop a program for the utilization of retired-teacher volunteers, the format of which was designed to provide enrichment experiences to assist gifted and talented elementary school students, particularly in the fields of oral expression and music. The data from questionnaires and evaluators suggest that talented, retired-teacher volunteers may be employed as superior tutors for the gifted and talented, and that a minimum amount of orientation is needed to adapt their professional skills to the unique exceptionalities these students may possess. A handbook for operationalizing a retired-teacher volunteer program is presented. Appendixes include summaries of goal effectiveness as rated by administrators, teachers, volunteer teachers and students, and forms for needs assessment for the use of principals interested in initiating such a program. A bibliography is attached. (JD)
