Summary

This review of the literature on in-service teacher education focuses on two points: 1) the teacher as an individual in the process of change and 2) the variables necessary to promote change. The introduction presents the purpose and types of in-service programs as well as current practices and assumptions surrounding the programs. Some of the variables discussed are evaluation of student achievement and teacher improvement; the design and format of the programs; teacher attitudes, beliefs, and involvements; selection of schools. The review stresses that variables related to altering in-service teacher education programs are the same or similar to those of any other social organization engaging in change. Therefore, the change process is discussed, identifying factors such as communication, resistance to change, environmental factors, change agents, inhibitors, and facilitators. The last section deals with the question of evaluation and presents personal reflections on in-service teacher education. References and bibliography are included. (BRB)
