Spanish Native Language Arts Staff Development Turnkey Training Program, Spring 1989. OREA Report.
Berney, Tomi D.
The Spanish Native Language Arts Development Turnkey Training Program attempted to create a network of secondary school administrators and teachers of Spanish acquainted with current research and methodology and able to provide staff development in native language arts for teachers of native Spanish speakers of limited English proficiency. Nine turnkey trainers and about 70 teachers participated. One language arts staff developer worked with the turnkey trainers on Saturdays from February through June. The turnkey trainers then worked with the teachers at six sites on Tuesday afternoons. The program met four of its objectives, and the fifth could not be assessed due to lack of data. Response to the program was positive among both trainers and teachers. Recommendations for program improvement include beginning the program earlier in the school year, and extension of the program to serve English-as-a-Second-Language and Chinese native language arts teachers.
