Yeshiva Univ., New York, NY. Ferkauf Graduate School of Humanities and Social Sciences.
This proposal for continued federal support of the sixth year of Project Beacon, an experimental demonstration program designed to develop new approaches to the preparation of effective beginning teachers of disadvantaged children in inner city elementary schools, includes listing and discussion of the behavioral objectives and a description of the project's organization, content, and schedule of seminars, T-Group sensitivity training, and field experiences. Proposed new components of the program, which is administered by Yeshiva University with the cooperation of the state, city schools, and community agencies, are listed: purchase of modern instructional materials for use in a series of experimental student teaching projects and employment of (1) a full-time clinical professor of education who would demonstrate effective instructional techniques in the classrooms of trainees and first-year graduates, (2) a Puerto Rican educator in residence to serve as a consultant on the history, culture, and special problems of Puerto Ricans, and (3) a research specialist available for frequent interaction with program staff for purposes of evaluation. The proposal also contains information on publicity, on staff personnel and other resources, and on selection of participants. (JS)
