Policy Frameworks for Local Action. Lessons from Implementing the Teacher Corps Guidelines. Volume 2. Final Report.
Beers, C. David; And Others
This volume is directed primarily toward local Teacher Corps practitioners and is intended to serve as a companion to Volume 1 of this final report. This volume provides an additional context for the description of and assumptions about Teacher Corps project implementation. Data collected in 1980 during site visits to selected projects and descriptions provided by local documenters at other sites provide a description of three aspects of Teacher Corps program implementation. Chapter I is devoted to the establishment of a collaborative relationship between the institution of higher education and a local education agency, one of the Teacher Corps mandates. The roles of project participants and the value of the planning year in the five-year project cycle are discussed. In Chapter II, the process of involving the community in the educational process is illustrated through a case study of a Teacher Corps project. Views on the process are expressed by local project documenters and by participants in the cooperative process. The involvement of the school staff in project planning is explored in Chapter III through a case study of an actual Teacher Corps project. Attention is given to the creation of a conducive collaborative climate, the finding of training resources, and the characteristics of the planning process. (FG)
