Summary

As a result of survey assessments which suggested a limited supply of science instructional resources in the Northaeastern Kansas area, the INSTEP (Integrative Network for Science Teaching Exploration and Practice) project was developed. Twenty-two 2nd-12th grade teachers from six school districts participated during 7 months of the project. The purpose of the project was to orient teachers to the potential of resource exchange. The project objectives included: (1) involving teachers in the development of instructional materials; (2) focusing teachers' attention on the potential of inquiry instruction; (3) improving the networking skills of teachers; (4) increasing the exchange of ideas among the project's teachers; (5) utilizing meeting, electronic mail services, and school site visitations; and (6) reinforcing the resource exchange process. The INSTEP Project's activities were based on both the Project 2061 report and the project's goals and assumptions. The purpose of this paper is to illuminate factors that might influence involvement when orienting teachers to resource exchange. Results are discussed in terms of lesson plan development activities, interschool inquiry activities, and project involvement. (KR)
