A Survey of the Effectiveness of the Focus Teacher "B" Training for the First Steps Project.
This report summarizes a survey of participants in a teacher training program for the First Steps project, which provides additional support for development of literacy and numeracy among "at-risk" students in Western Australia schools. The training program was to assist teachers in implementing the program in their schools. Respondents to the survey (questionnaire appended) were 516 teachers, 25 principals, 54 deputy principals, 20 school development officers, and 38 other educators. Questions elicited responses concerning the value of program content revisions, the value of the training in presentation skills, participant presentation skills before and after the training, adequacy of the course, confidence about presentation after the course, other areas where the skills and knowledge gained in the course might be used, course strengths, other needed course components, additional support needed for respondents to carry out their jobs, and additional comments.
