Summary

This summary is a condensation of a 119-page major research study. The project studied the effects of an experimental teacher training program designed to help teachers nurture creativity in their pupils during the initial year of a city school desegregation plan. A pretest-posttest control group design was employed. One-half of the teachers participated in an experimental in-service program throughout the school year while one-half did not. The sample group was composed of all fifth and sixth grade students and their teachers in the Harrisburg School District. The fifth grade contained 39 teachers and 945 pupils and the sixth grade contained 39 teachers and 887 pupils. The Pennsylvania Department of Education designed the nine 90-minute workshop programs into three parts: a) an introduction to psychosocial issues involved in pupil creativity, b) a review of the factors of pupil creativity which are under the teachers' control, and c) the presentation of practical alternatives which are available to teachers. Teachers and pupils were tested in the fall of 1970 and again in the spring of 1971. The in-service program was well received by the teachers. All but one teacher involved in the program experimented with the ideas and materials presented. (Related Document is SP 005 641.) (MJM)
