THE TUTORIAL AND CLINICAL PROGRAM OF TEACHER EDUCATION.
HAZARD, WILLIAM R.
TO EXPLORE THE POTENTIAL OF A TEACHER EDUCATION PROGRAM FOR FRESHMEN EDUCATION MAJORS WHICH EMPHASIZES DIRECT TEACHING EXPERIENCE RATHER THAN THE LECTURE-DISCUSSION FORMAT, THIS EXPERIMENTAL PROGRAM WAS BEGUN IN 1964. ITS STUDENTS COMBINE A FULL ACADEMIC SCHEDULE WITH CLINICAL EXPERIENCES AS TEACHER AIDES, TUTORS, OBSERVERS, AND STUDENT TEACHERS. ACADEMICALLY, A GENERAL EDUCATION COURSE, CONSISTING OF 17 COURSES IN (1) READING, WRITING, AND SPEAKING, (2) NATURAL SCIENCE, (3) SOCIAL SCIENCE, (4) FINE ARTS, LITERATURE, AND MUSIC, (5) HISTORY, PHILOSOPHY, AND RELIGION, AND (6) PSYCHOLOGY FOR TEACHERS, IS REQUIRED. AN ADDITIONAL 12 TO 20 COURSES ARE REQUIRED IN EITHER AN ELEMENTARY OR SECONDARY SCHOOL TEACHING PROGRAM. IN SCHOOL, THE STUDENTS ARE SUPERVISED BY A TUTORIAL PROFESSOR (ONE FOR EACH 10 TO 12 STUDENTS) WHO TEACHES A SIX-COURSE, 4-YEAR, TUTORIAL PROGRAM AND HAS RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE STUDENT'S TOTAL PROGRAM. SIX CLINICAL PROFESSORS FROM COOPERATING SCHOOL SYSTEMS, IN CONSTANT COMMUNICATION WITH THE TUTORIAL PROFESSORS, WORK WITH THE STUDENTS DURING THEIR ACTUAL TEACHING EXPERIENCES. THEY (1) CRITICIZE AND EVALUATE THE STUDENT'S PERFORMANCE, (2) HELP HIM APPLY HIS CLASSROOM KNOWLEDGE TO ACTUAL TEACHING, AND (3) ATTEMPT, ON A COLLEAGUE TO COLLEAGUE BASIS, TO LEAD HIM TO SOLUTIONS TO ANY PROBLEMS HE MAY HAVE. THE PROGRAM IS CONSTANTLY EVALUATED BY THE PROFESSORS INVOLVED AND BY A CONTINUING RESEARCH PROGRAM.
