A new project, headquartered at Northwestern State University of Louisiana, offers comprehensive training for middle school teachers, supervisors, and university faculty through a series of workshops, Web discussion groups, and summer institutes. Participants may enter the training at several points, and interpersonal collaboration among participants is encouraged, both in face to face and Internet settings. Learners will have the option of participating in a variety of levels, and discourse among both program authors and participants through Web based training and discussion is integrated into the latter phases of the project. This project is directed to the particular needs of middle school professionals, both in the subject matter of the instruction and in the style of organization and participant involvement. Though focused on state standards of accomplishment, the project and its World Wide Web focus will be both accessible and valuable to participants from other places, as well.
