The Developmental Year of a Five Year Teacher Corps Project. A Pilot Study.
Grady, Michael P.
This report describes the planning processes used to develop a five-year teacher corps project for inservice teacher improvement. The planning model was designed to provide collaboration with all persons who would be involved in the project. The input from district, university, and community consultants was used as well as from teachers representing all elementary and secondary grade levels. A discussion of the philosophy and rationale of the program is presented, and the goals and objectives are outlined. A planning matrix is outlined that provides for collaborative input on the following areas of the program: (1) teacher corps guidelines; (2) needs assessment; (3) goals and objectives; (4) delivery system; (5) governance (policy); (6) management; (7) evaluation; (8) demonstration; and (9) institutional adoption. A copy of the questionnaire used to determine teachers' concerns and perceived needs is appended. An over-all evaluation of the planning process is included. (JD)
