This booklet describes some recent participant planned staff development activities in Massachusetts. To varying degrees, programs are initiated, governed, and designed by participants. In the first section, profiles are presented of six programs which represent a cross-section of models serving small, medium, and large school systems. Included in this section are programs which highlight self-help groups, curriculum development, coordination of inservice activities, and peer training. Program abstracts in the second section provide information on other programs including purpose, training structure, number of participants, and funding source. The final section lists teacher center and Teacher Corps programs in Massachusetts as well as educational collaboratives and locally-based organizations with extensive experience in staff development.
