Academy for the Advancement of Teaching and Management.
New Jersey State Dept. of Education, Trenton.
In response to the national impetus for improvement in education, New Jersey officials have proposed the creation of the Academy for the Advancement of Teaching and Management, an organization designed to raise the standards of professional skills for teachers and principals. The organization will train teachers and administrators for 2 years in specific structured teaching and instructional management practices. Participation will be voluntary, with elected schools sending a team of three to five teachers and the building principal. Various training programs, based upon different instructional strategies and approaches, will be offered. Trained teams will subsequently demonstrate and train others. This program, planned for joint funding, will be staffed by a director/trainer, several permanent staff trainers, a 1-year resident visiting expert, outside consultants, and one local teacher/instructional practitioner. In order to foster effective schooling, goals and objectives include activities intended to promote change in school environmental and social conditions. (BJD)
