AN INTEGRATED TEAM TEACHING APPROACH TO METHODS COURSE.
SKEEL, DOROTHY
TEACHER EDUCATION THROUGH APPLIED METHODS (TEAM), AN EXPERIMENTAL PROGRAM FOR THE INTEGRATION OF ELEMENTARY METHODS COURSES, IS DISCUSSED. SPECIALISTS WHO MAY FORM A TEACHING TEAM ARE OFTEN FROM THE AREAS OF LANGUAGE ARTS, MATHEMATICS, SCIENCE, SOCIAL STUDIES, AND INSTRUCTIONAL MEDIA. THE PURPOSES FOR DEVELOPING A TEAM APPROACH ARE TO REDUCE THE OVERLAP OF METHODS COURSES CONTENT, TO DEVELOP A FAVORABLE ATTITUDE TOWARD INNOVATION AND CHANGE, TO PROVIDE PRACTICAL APPLICATIONS OF THEORY, TO GIVE EXPERIENCE IN THE ANALYTICAL STUDY OF THE TEACHING-LEARNING PROCESS, TO INCREASE COOPERATION BETWEEN THE TEACHER EDUCATION INSTITUTION AND THE LOCAL SCHOOL SYSTEM, AND TO FOSTER INTERACTION TOWARD TEACHER EDUCATION AMONG THE TEAM MEMBERS. THE PROGRAM INCLUDES THE USE OF SIMULATED MATERIALS, MAJOR TOPICS, AND METHODS COURSES. THE CORRELATION AMONG THE CONTENT AREAS IS DESCRIBED. FLEXIBILITY IN SCHEDULING AND CLOSER STUDENT-FACULTY RELATIONSHIPS ARE CONSIDERED INHERENT IN THE PROGRAM. THIS PAPER WAS PRESENTED AT THE INTERNATIONAL READING ASSOCIATION CONFERENCE (BOSTON, APRIL 24-27, 1968). (BK)
