Field-Based Clinical Inservice Education. Eleventh Cycle Teacher Corps.
Freiberg, H. Jerome; And Others
The major goal of the inservice program described in this document was to develop, implement, and evaluate a training program designed to maximize the professional growth of inservice personnel, including all participants in each phase of planning. The services of a clinical instructor and a consultant were used. In the planning phase of the program, teachers specified individual needs and objectives, and the program adhered closely to these stated goals. The consultant identified ways in which the clinical instructor could asssist the teacher in mastering and applying new skills. The program was conducted, in part, in the classroom with the clinical instructor actively participating with the teacher providing feedback with regard to the teacher's mastery of new skills and knowledge. Alternative learning activities for teachers with differing interests and abilities were offered in workshops, and opportunities to practice new skills were provided in a protected setting away from the classroom. Emphasis was placed on the individual teacher's professional goals, and financial incentives were offered to participants. (JD)
