The Utilization of Psychologists for Staff Development in a Large Public School System: A Staff Development Director's Perspective.
Stone, James L., Jr.
This model proposes the TAP Team approach as an on-site delivery system for local school staff development in large, urban school systems. TAP emphasizes in-service training for both upgrading skills of staff and for helping staff acquire new skills in the areas of coping strategies, classroom management, communication skills, instructional methodologies, decision-making processes, motivational techniques, leadership styles and multi-cultural understanding. The TAP Team: (1) consists of a staff development specialist from the local school system and a university-level educational psychologist; (2) draws upon resources from both the local school system and the university serving that school system's personnel; and (3) works with the school principal to initiate activities culminating in the creation of the School Leadership Team, which is a vehicle for needs identification, planning, implementation and evaluation.
