Teacher, Administrator, and Science Educator Form a TRIAD.
Stepans, Joseph I.; Miller, Kenneth W.
This report relates how a classroom teacher, building administrator, and a science educator form a partnership to promote change in classroom teaching practices as well as overcome some of the barriers that exist between the conduct of educational research and classroom practice. This paper describes this partnership which serves as one of the components of an on-going inservice model named TRIAD. Some other features of this model which are discussed include: (1) the classroom teacher as researcher; (2) the role of the administrator as active supporter; (3) the activity is conducted on-site, rather than as a campus-based institute or workshop; (5) and the model contains many of the components of an effective inservice as identified in the literature by researchers. Contains 15 references. (ZWH)
