A REPORT OF THE GREAT NECK-N.Y.U. PROJECT, JANUARY 31 TO MAY 27, 1966.
ELY, MARGOT; MCLEOD, JUNE
TWENTY-FIVE JUNIOR EDUCATION MAJORS PARTICIPATED IN A ONE-SCHOOL PROJECT TO IDENTIFY, UTILIZE, AND EVALUATE NEW METHODS, MEDIA, AND TECHNIQUES OF TEACHER EDUCATION. THE 17-WEEK PROGRAM CONSISTED OF STUDENT TEACHING AND OBSERVATION 3 DAYS A WEEK (AND ALL OF WEEKS 13-16), AND 2 DAYS OF PROFESSIONAL CONTENT COURSES (CURRICULUM, LANGUAGE ARTS, AND METHODS). COURSES AND FIELD WORK WERE COORDINATED TO EMPHASIZE FOR 2 OR 3 WEEKS EACH THE VARIOUS CONTENT AREAS OF THE CURRICULUM (SCIENCE, LANGUAGE ARTS, MATH, ART AND INDUSTRIAL ARTS AND HOME ECONOMICS, SOCIAL STUDIES, GUIDANCE, AND MUSIC AND PHYSICAL EDUCATION). TEAMS OF STUDENTS WERE PLACED IN CLASSROOMS, BUT EXPERIENCE WAS NOT LIMITED TO ONE CLASSROOM. STUDENTS WERE ALSO GIVEN OPPORTUNITIES TO TEACH SMALL GROUPS OF CHILDREN AND TO RECEIVE FEEDBACK FOLLOWING EACH ACTIVITY. SUPERVISION OF STUDENT TEACHING WAS DONE BY COLLEGE STAFF MEMBERS AND TWO TEACHING FELLOWS. EVERY STUDENT WAS SEEN EVERY DAY. THE THE PROGRAM WAS SUPPLEMENTED BY GUEST LECTURERS SUCH AS A SCHOOL PSYCHIATRIST AND A TEACHER EXPERT IN PLANNING AND EVALUATION. EXTENSIVE USE WAS MADE OF INTERACTION ANALYSIS, VIDEO TAPING, AND 8-MM FILMING OF CLASSROOM ACTIVITIES EVEN BY THE STUDENTS THEMSELVES. REACTION TO THE PROGRAM WAS FAVORABLE WITH MANY POSSIBILITIES FOR THESE MEDIA BEING SEEN. PRECISE RECORDS AND SCHEDULES ARE PROVIDED. (LC)
