A Content Analysis of the First Teacher Centers Program Proposals.
Yarger, Sam J.; Mertens, Sally K.
Five hundred program proposals to the new federal Teacher Centers Program were analyzed with the aim of determining how educational leaders, especially teachers, see the potential for teacher center development. The rationale and process for content analysis is discussed. Descriptions of teacher center proposals are presented and comparison is made of the top-ranked and bottom-ranked proposals. A typical proposed teacher center is described. Appended are a proposal description form, data tables for 407 teacher center proposals, histograms of budget distributions, and a summary of comparisons of top-ranked and bottom-ranked proposals.
