The Hunter Staff Development Model: Why Is It Working? How Can It Be Improved?
Davidman, Leonard
An analysis is presented of the Hunter Staff Development Model. Suggestions for improving the implementation of the model are based on a review of the literature pertinent to the Hunter model, and a series of interviews with: (1) teachers and administrators who have received training in the Hunter model; (2) a group of Hunter Staff Development Model-oriented trainers; and (3) Madeline Hunter, the chief architect of the clinical theory of instruction from which the various staff development programs are derived. Part one consists of an overview of the origins and content of the Hunter model. Part two enumerates and discusses factors which help to explain the model's high degree of success with teachers, school district administrators, and university-based teacher educators. In part three, aspects of the program which are likely to contribute to some misunderstandings and tension between school district based Hunter model advocates and university-based teacher educators are discussed, along with recommendations designed to reduce such misunderstandings.
