A Guide to Inservice Science Teacher Education: Research into Practice. 1986 AETS Yearbook.
Spector, Barbara S., Ed.
Designed to assist science educators in improving inservice teacher education, this yearbook contains resources and ideas addressing the application of recent research into a format suitable for practitioners. The eight chapters comprising the document deal with: (1) meeting the needs of science teachers for continuing education; (2) guidelines for effective science teacher inservice (including perspectives from research); (3) assessing teachers' needs for inservice; (4) a paradigm for staff development planning; (5) structures for the delivery of inservice program models; (6) the evaluation of staff development (with an emphasis on staff development becoming a process rather than an event); (7) a planner's guide to inservice; and (8) a response to the entire document. Examples of inservice needs assessments, time inservice plans, and checklists are provided. (TW)
