The Greenville Teacher Corps project developed a model demonstration of a field based teacher education program designed to provide both preservice and inservice training to a rural and isolated region in northern Maine. The project was designed to be responsive to local needs. Collaboration and participation of all constituents was central to the operation of the project. Major project goals included facilitating linkages between the University and the Greenville community; enabling the University to develop a field based graduate education model; and developing and installing a K-12 individualized instructional program. Accomplishments of the project are clearly evident. The Teacher Corps project was directly responsibile for the delivery of a number of important services. (JN)
