DESCRIPTION OF THE FORD OCCUPATIONAL INSTRUCTOR PROJECT FOR THE PREPARATION OF TEACHERS FOR TWO YEAR POST-HIGH SCHOOL SEMI-PROFESSIONAL OCCUPATIONAL PROGRAMS.
Southern Illinois Univ., Carbondale.; Midwest Technical Education Center, Clayton, MO.; Saint Louis Community Coll., MO.
POPULATION INCREASES HAVE BEEN PARALLELED BY INCREASED DEMAND FOR HIGHLY TRAINED AND SKILLED PERSONNEL. ALTHOUGH MUCH OF THIS DEMAND MUST BE MET BY THE JUNIOR COLLEGES, FACULTY GROWTH HAS NOT KEPT PACE WITH STUDENT ENROLLMENTS, FOR VERY FEW INSTITUTIONS HAVE PROGRAMS TO PREPARE TEACHERS FOR 2-YEAR POST-HIGH SCHOOL PROGRAMS. SOUTHERN ILLINOIS UNIVERSITY AND THE ST. LOUIS JUNIOR COLLEGE DISTRICT HAVE DEVELOPED A PROGRAM OF SUCH PREPARATION. APPLICANTS WITH ADEQUATE SUBJECT MATTER PREPARATION MAY BE ACCEPTED IN AN INTERNSHIP PROGRAM WHICH INCLUDES TEACHING UNDER SUPERVISION OF A MASTER TEACHER, COURSE WORK, SEMINARS AND FIELD ASSIGNMENTS IN BUSINESS, INDUSTRIAL OR PROFESSIONAL AREAS. THE PROGRAM, DESIGNED FOR PERSONS WHO ARE INTERESTED IN SUCH TEACHING BUT WHO LACK EDUCATIONAL REQUIREMENTS BEYOND THE BACHELOR'S DEGREE, PROVIDES OPPORTUNITY TO EARN A STIPEND WHILE WORKING TOWARD A MASTER'S DEGREE. ACADEMIC DISCIPLINES AND OCCUPATIONAL SPECIALTIES ARE INCLUDED. (WO)
