Insite. Fourth Annual Report to the Ford Foundation (July 1, 1966-June 30, 1967). Part IV, The Acroclinical Semester: Secondary Division.
McQuigg, R. Bruce
This last volume of a 4-part report reviews the secondary division program of the acroclinical semester, an accelerated experience designed to correlate methods instruction (including theory) as closely as possible with student teaching (the practice). Each of 15 sections deals with 1 program element; most sections include discussion of the original planning, problems of coordination, changes made before the spring semester, and evaluation by staff and students. Six sections deal with the content and material components: the 2-day "capstone experience" designed to test students' skills and feelings concerning teaching; specialized methods instruction in English, modern foreign language, mathematics, science, and social studies; 10 hours of audiovisual instruction; a course in principles of secondary education designed to encourage development of personal philosophies of teaching; 6 hours of statistics instruction; and extended student teaching experiences. (Included also are the Insite Student Teaching Evaluation Forms.) Separate sections are devoted to the joint planning and responsibilities of department heads and methods teachers; organization and scheduling, and program strengths, major methods teachers; organization and the 12 students who left the program. Other sections discuss the use and program strengths, major problems, plans for continuation, and notes regarding documents are SP 001 557, SP 001 683, SP 001 684, SP 001 685. (JS)
