INTENSIVE INDIVIDUALIZATION OF TEACHER PREPARATION.
FULLER, FRANCES F.; AND OTHERS
THIS ANECDOTAL REPORT PRESENTS SOME EXPERIENCES OF THE STUDENT TEACHERS WHO TOOK PART IN A PROJECT DEVISED TO FIND WAYS TO PREPARE STUDENT TEACHERS TO BE READY TO LEARN TO TEACH AT THE BEGINNING OF THEIR STUDENT TEACHER PERIOD INSTEAD OF AT THE END. "THE PERSONALITY, TEACHER EDUCATION, AND TEACHER BEHAVIOR RESEARCH PROJECT" COMBINED A RESEARCH STUDY AND A DEMONSTRATION PROJECT INTO ONE PROGRAM THAT WAS CONDUCTED AS PART OF THE REGULAR, ONGOING OPERATIONS OF THE UNIVERSITY OF TEXAS. THE PROJECT SOUGHT TO DEVISE WAYS OF USING GROUP THERAPY TECHNIQUES TO MEET THE CONCERNS OF PROSPECTIVE TEACHERS AND TO HELP THEM COPE WITH THEIR PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT TASKS. THREE KINDS OF PROCEDURES WERE USED--COUNSELING, INSTRUCTIONAL, CONSULTATIVE. INDIVIDUAL COUNSELING ON A VOLUNTARY BASIS OFFERED PSYCHOLOGICAL ASSISTANCE TO THE PROSPECTIVE TEACHERS. GROUP COUNSELING WAS TRIED AND THEN REPLACED WITH A COUNSELING-ORIENTED EDUCATIONAL PSYCHOLOGY COURSE ACCOMPANIED BY JUNIOR-YEAR OBSERVATION AND TEACHING. TEST INTERPRETATION WAS MADE AVAILABLE TO ALL PROSPECTIVE TEACHERS. ASSESSMENT INSTRUMENTS WERE DEVISED TO ASSESS THE PERSONALITY AND MENTAL HEALTH OF THE STUDENTS AT VARIOUS POINTS. ALL PARTICIPANTS IN THE STUDY, STUDENTS, COUNSELORS, PSYCHOLOGISTS, INSTRUCTORS, AND COOPERATING TEACHERS WERE TESTED, FILMED AND EVALUATED. AT THE TIME OF REPORTING, DIFFERENT KINDS OF FEEDBACK FROM TEST INTERPRETATIONS, FILMS, AND COUNSELING WERE BEING STUDIED. FUTURE RESEARCH IS PLANNED TO SEE IF TEACHERS CAN APPLY THE DEVELOPED THERAPY TECHNIQUES IN THE CLASSROOM TO HELP THE GROWTH OF NONDISTURBED CHILDREN. THIS IS A REPORT TO BE PUBLISHED AS A CHAPTER IN THE 1967 YEARBOOK OF THE ASSOCIATION FOR STUDENT TEACHING. (AL)
