Teaching Teachers to Teach Teachers. The First Phase of a New Approach to Inservice Education.
Bolland, Kathleen A.; And Others
Teachers can take on the additional responsibility of inservice leadership and can be trained in the processes of curriculum development. Through implementation of those procedures, teachers can initiate an ongoing system of needs-based inservice education. Steps in initiating this process include: (1) Teachers take the major responsibility for identification of needs and strengths and inservice planning; (2) Once needs have been identified, goals and objectives are specified; (3) When goals and objectives have been specified, a validation process allows individuals affected by the inservice process to clarify their needs--an important step in collaborative planning; (4) After teachers validate goals and objectives, they begin to design and develop inservice activities that address specified needs and goals; (5) After activities have been developed, inservice programs are delivered by the designer or by teachers who are proficient at delivery; and (6) Teachers, through evaluating their students' performance and through completing evaluation forms regarding inservice programs they have attended, are capable of sound evaluation of the program they have developed.
