Summary

During the summer of 1968, a 6-week inservice training institute was held at Duluth, Minnesota, for 45 experienced teachers from 13 secondary schools throughout the United States. These schools are part of a 17-school ES '70 Network banded together for the purpose of developing innovative curricula for the 1970's. The purpose of the institute was to prepare the 45 teachers in the following areas: writing behavioral objectives and developing "learning packages" to attain these objectives; gaining skill in group dynamics and developing more self-understanding, openness, and ability to deal with affective phenomena; becoming acquainted with educational simulation; and gaining experience with a broadly-based humanities approach to learning. Significant gains were attained in measured ability to identify, evaluate, and develop behavioral objectives, and in measured attitudes toward teaching and students, in the direction of more acceptance and understanding of students. Subjective, open-ended evaluation by enrollees and generally positive toward the institute, but also somewhat critical of the humanities and educational simulation aspects of the program. Based on critique by enrollees, changes are recommended for future institutes, and a reunion followup is advised to permit further evaluation and sharing of transfer values and experiences.
