PIE Cycles/Planning-Implementing-Evaluation Format for Teacher Change and Public School Renewal.
Hainsworth, Jerome C.; Schroeder, Gary, Ed.
Between 1975 and 1977 an instructional research team and a Teacher Corps Project at Hopkinsville Middle School in Kentucky began the development of an inservice teacher education program designed to combine the experience of inservice teachers with the knowledge of university faculty. This report contains samples of the results of this type of responsive inservice program. The products are based on contractual agreements between teachers and university staff. Products are called "Planning, Implementing, and Evaluation Cyles" (PIE Cycles). The content areas in which this approach is administered include science, English, social studies, reading improvement, physical education, and an exploratory unit investigating the possibilities of developing a child's individual talents without shifting the emphasis completely away from basic skills.
