Beyond Conventional Teacher Inservice: Establishing the Medium for School Change.
Miller, Kenneth W.
In spite of decades of research and staff development attempts, few efforts at reforming education in our schools have been successful. This paper discusses the structure of the Triad Inservice Model, a partnership specifically designed to enable teachers to control the curriculum and their own instructional techniques, and to facilitate the process of school change. Qualitative data were collected using the model, and recommendations were noted from specific field testing with two groups of elementary school teachers. These teachers met throughout the school year for six sessions, with each session lasting 2 or 3 days. The strengths of the various components of the model (i.e., modeling, teacher research, conceptual change, peer coaching, interviewing techniques, and collegial sharing) are discussed in relation to the teachers' 2-year understanding and use. The Triad Model appeared successful in terms of enhancing teacher attitudes, feelings of confidence, and empowerment relationships. (Contains 33 references.) (ND)
