Summary

Phase 2 of Project IN-STEP was conducted to revise, refine, and conduct further field testing of a new inservice teacher education model. The method developed (in Phase 1--see ED 003 905 for report) is an individualized, multi-media approach. Revision activities, based on feedback provided for Phase 1, include the remaking of six videotape lessons, development of an "Action Handbook" to supplement them, and revision of the 200-page self-study programed text. An elementary science curriculum, "Science--A Process Approach" (AAAS Science), provided the content for the development of the model. During the 1969-70 school year 511 elementary school teachers in Palm Beach County and Alachua County, Florida, were admitted to IN-STEP training programs in AAAS Science. Both experimental and control groups were pre- and posttested with the Elementary Science Teachers Inventory (Lane). Analysis of data serves to further confirm the hypothesis suggested by the results of Phase 1: that the IN-STEP approach is an effective and efficient method of conducting inservice training (at least in AAAS Science). Conclusions were based on results obtained from Phase 1 and statistically significant gains in group mean scores of all the experimental instructional groups during Phase 2 (1969-70). (Author/JS)
