Adult Basic Education Staff Development Guide.
Freer, Kevin J.
This guide provides information on how to plan, implement, and evaluate staff development programs for adult basic education teachers, administrators, volunteers, and aides. It is divided into sections that deal with various components of a staff developmental program: (1) background information; (2) planning; (3) implementation; (4) evaluation; and (5) resources. It is organized in such a way as to serve as a resource when completing the Application for Staff Development Funds from the Ohio Department of Education. Background information includes state certification and inservice training requirements, factors affecting staff development training, and guidelines for effective staff development. The planning section covers collaborative planning (working with an advisory committee), needs assessment, matching plans to needs, and stages of teacher development. The implementation section addresses delivery, training development formats, characteristics of a competent staff developer, and content of inservice staff development. The evaluation section contains materials on planning; models; design; evaluating participant expectation, methods and techniques, and outcomes; and evaluation methods. Appendixes to each section contain forms and samples. The resources section provides material on the ERIC system, 28 references, literacy volunteer contact information, and a list of state network resource people. (YLB)
