A Collaborative Restructuring Teacher Education Program: A Teachers Teaching Teachers Institute.
Ryan, Patricia M.
In the Fall of 1991, an advisory group of teachers was formed for the purpose of developing a Teachers Teaching Teacher Institute (TTTI) that would be designed, implemented, and evaluated by teachers for teachers. The advisory group was comprised of experienced, practicing classroom teachers from a cross section of school districts and grade levels. The panel produced a list of workshop topics, identified experienced classroom teachers as directors, and designed a program format. The TTTI has three interrelated components: (1) summer workshops offered for graduate credit; (2) follow-up sessions once per quarter throughout the school year; and (3) a training component for workshop directors. The existence of the TTTI has depended on ongoing evaluations: formal, informal, formative, and evaluative sources have been used to assess it. Participants assess instructional quality, content, and program design; directors evaluate instructional quality, content, and program design; and the advisory group evaluates the overall success of the program and generates ideas to improve it.
