From the Lab Bench to the Classroom: A Program Planner's Guide to Developing Summer Fellowships for Classroom Science Teachers.
National Inst. of Mental Health (DHHS), Rockville, MD.
This guide stems from concern that many classroom teachers have limited exposure to the scientific community in general and to the nature and method of science in particular. It offers guidelines and suggestions to plan, conduct, and evaluate summer mentorship programs and gives practical advice on establishing programs, garnering institutional support, soliciting financial support, engaging participating partners, and fostering productive teacher-mentor relationships. The information presented here has been culled from the experiences and insights of other program planners and teachers who have actually participated in fellowship programs. Chapters include: (1) "Planning and Evaluating Programs"; (2) "Roles of Host Institution, Mentor, and Teacher"; and (3) "Development of Instructional Materials". Appendices contain an application for a summer fellowship program and post-program surveys of teachers and mentors. (JRH)
