HAMILTON, NORMAN K.; AND OTHERS
TO IMPROVE THE QUALITY OF THE PRACTICUM EXPERIENCE (STUDENT TEACHING OR INTERNSHIP) IN TEACHER EDUCATION THROUGH ITS INTEGRATION INTO THE TOTAL PROGRAM AND THE DEVELOPMENT OF HIGHLY COMPETENT SUPERVISING TEACHERS, THE FOLLOWING STEPS ARE PROPOSED--(1) JOINT COLLEGE AND PUBLIC SCHOOL RESPONSIBILITIES SHOULD BE ASSUMED BY A "CLINICAL PROFESSOR," WHO WILL CONDUCT SEMINARS, HELP IMPROVE THE SKILLS OF THE CLASSROOM SUPERVISING TEACHER, AND PROVIDE EXPERT LEADERSHIP IN THE CONDUCT OF THE "CLINICAL CYCLE" (OBSERVATION OF PERFORMANCE, ANALYSIS, PLANNING STRATEGY, AND ACTUAL TEACHER-SUPERVISOR CONFERENCE), (2) SUPERVISING TEACHERS SHOULD OBTAIN INTENSIVE TRAINING BY PARTICIPATING IN THE CLINICAL CYCLE IN SUMMER SCHOOLS UNDER THE GUIDANCE OF CLINICAL PROFESSORS, AND (3) COLLEGE PROGRAMS TO SELECT AND TRAIN CLINICAL PROFESSORS SHOULD BE ESTABLISHED, WITH THE EVENTUAL GOAL OF A RECOGNIZED DOCTORATE IN CLINICAL SUPERVISION. IN THE OREGON PROGRAM THE CLINICAL PROFESSOR IS A RESIDENT IN THE SCHOOL DISTRICT (CUTTING TRAVEL TIME), RECEIVES HALF OF HIS SALARY FROM THE SCHOOL DISTRICT AND HALF FROM THE COLLEGE, RETAINS ALL BENEFITS OF THE SCHOOL SYSTEM AND THUS IS IDENTIFIED WITH IT AND ITS PURPOSES, AND HAS FULL PRIVILEGES AND RESPONSIBILITIES AS A MEMBER OF THE COLLEGE STAFF. THE MAJOR PROBLEM HAS BEEN FINANCES. THE PRESENT PROPOSAL LOOKS TO SOURCES OUTSIDE THE SCHOOL OR COLLEGE FOR FUNDS. THIS PAPER WAS PRESENTED AT THE WESTERN REGIONAL TEPS CONFERENCE (SAN FRANCISCO, FEBRUARY 1966). (LC)
