Technical Status Report on Staff Development. Final Report.
Stayrook, Nicholas; And Others
Staff development activities for teachers in 20 Teacher Corps projects were analyzed for this report. The primary sources of data were documentation essays and interviews, although self report and demographic questionnaires and training logs were also used. Hypotheses were generated from Teacher Corps Rules and Regulations, research literature, and site visit experiences. The documentation essays are analyzed in two sections. The first section discusses essays written in 1979 on project training practices and the subject focus of the training. In the second section, essays written in 1980 on the contributions of the Teacher Corps to inservice teacher training are discussed. The essays addressed four factors: (1) the impact of federal rules and regulations on staff development programs; (2) the implementation of programs in local schools; (3) Teacher Corps contributions to the local education agency's personnel development system; and (4) the impact of the programs on institutions of higher education. Appendices provide guidelines for writing two documentation assignments. (FG)
