Peace Corps Stateside Teacher Training for Volunteers in Liberia. Volume IV: Training Program for Secondary School Teachers (Group C). Final Report.
PSI Associates, Inc., Washington, DC.
The Peace Corps stateside training program for secondary school teachers in Liberia trained 37 volunteers in several subject area groups--language arts, mathematics and science, and health. Because many of the teachers had never taught before, their 4-week training program concentrated on teaching and learning theories and specific teaching skills/techniques, on sharpening content skills, and on opportunities for practice teaching. Week 1 was devoted to workshops on teaching theory and general teaching techniques. During week 2, teachers were divided up into specific content areas. Week 3 saw the teachers working in District of Columbia Public Schools as student teachers, using lesson plans they had developed. The final week of the training program was used for skills refinement, simulated teaching experiences, and evaluation. Included in this document are many of the resource materials the volunteers received. Present are such items as Liberia's secondary school curricula for English (complete with aims, objectives, and syllabus), mathematics, and science. (JM)
