4. Influence of a Teacher Workshop
Teacher training workshop sites representing different
community size areas were selected.
Individual telephone interviews were conducted with 24
teachers within six months after teachers participated in a
training workshop to:
determine if there was a relationship between workshop
attendance and curriculum use;
determine if teachers were receiving adequate
information on best practices for current state and
national educational standards;
develop guidelines for an optimal training workshop
model or delivery mechanism to meet curriculum goals
and objectives; and
to make comparisons between information gathered
from teacher surveys and interviews with teachers who
attended training workshops.
