Training the Teachers in Western Samoa: Some Wider Implications
Palmer, W. P.
Online Submission, Paper presented at the Annual Meeting of the Australian and New Zealand Comparative and International Education Society (22nd, Melbourne, Australia, Dec 4-7, 1994)
I have been a part of a program in Western Samoa that involves inservicing Western Samoan secondary teachers in all subjects. My part in the program has been to inservice the science teachers in the delivery of the environmental science curriculum to students in the junior secondary schools. Quite a number of the secondary teachers are upgraded primary school teachers and have comparatively little background in their subject areas. The paper will explain the setting of the project broadly, will give some examples of the difficulties that our team encountered in carrying out the task and will raise some general issues of being involved in an Australian Aid Program. Flow Chart of Linkages between units Western Samoan Environmental Science Curriculum is appended. [This paper was published in: Educating all the Family (Editors Mike Read and Roger R.
