Peace Corps Stateside Teacher Training for Volunteers in Liberia. Volume I: Evaluation Report. Final Report.
PSI Associates, Inc., Washington, DC.
This report contains an evaluation of the Peace Corps stateside teacher training model for volunteers in Liberia. The first section lists recommendations stemming from the evaluation, concerning the pre-training questionnaire, deselection during training, emergency procedures, and the teacher training program. Section 2 describes the training model, which emphasizes the development of curriculum competencies to provide volunteers with basic generic skills to use in Liberia. The product-oriented model's three levels of training are noted: general teaching methodology; review and upgrading in the content area and practice teaching in junior/senior high schools; and inservice workshops for peers. Cross-cultural training and unexpected training events are also described. Section 3 discusses the staff evaluation of the training program, in which key staff members were interviewed about specific areas of program organization, content, effectiveness, and impressions. The fourth section details volunteer evaluation of training by analyzing pre- and post-training questionnaires and interviews. The second half of the report includes the actual evaluation materials used by trainees to evaluate the program and by staff to evaluate trainee success. These materials include guidelines for trainee evaluation, guidelines for teacher-trainer evaluation, skills assessment evaluation materials, preservice training objectives, and a final evaluation rating scale and summary sheet.
