This report summarizes responses of Participant Teachers to selected questions in a program application form and a survey administered at the conclusion of every Intel Teach to the Future "Classic" training in the United States between July 2000 to December 2003. The data reported here demonstrate that teachers' responses to this training have been highly positive throughout the life of the program. Findings reported here include the following: (1) Teachers give high ratings to their trainers and to the curriculum itself; (2) Teachers report that the program focuses heavily on topics that are the core intended themes of the training; (3) Teachers say the training has prepared them to integrate technology into their teaching; and (4) Teachers would recommend the training to a friend or colleague. All teachers who completed the 40-hour Classic Intel Teach to the Future training were expected to complete this survey. Master Teachers from this program completed a slightly different version of this survey at the conclusion of their training, and those results are presented in a separate report. The total number of valid responses to this survey was 49,329. In addition, paired t-tests were used to calculate change in teachers' responses to some questions included both in the application to the program (prior to training) and in the survey administered at the conclusion of the training. Intel Teach to the Future Participant Teacher Training Evaluation is appended.
