A Model Program for Improving the Education of Preservice and Inservice Teachers of Elementary, Secondary and Exceptional Children in Metropolitan Areas; Interim Report
Connecticut Univ., Storrs. School of Education.
This interim report (written four weeks after the program had begun operation) of the University of Connecticut's Model Program for Improving the Education of Preservice and Inservice Teachers of Elementary, Secondary, and Exceptional Children in Metropolitan Areas (Groton and New London, Connecticut) describes the procedures to date (staffing, housing, testing, operation of the educational program, and the inservice program for public school personnel), evaluation (including student, cooperating inservice personnel, and outside evaluations), and anticipated modifications. Special features of the program include using community members as lecturers to interact with the students and serve as liaison with local minority groups, having students live together at a location within the urban community, and coordinating the preservice education program with an inservice program for public school personnel. Included in this report are two outside evaluations (primarily descriptive) of the program which were written by Raymond Budde, University of Maine, and Maureen Lapan, Rhode Island College. Appended is a daily activities log prepared by a student in the preservice teacher education part of the program. (This program was the winner of the 1969 American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education Distinguished Achievement Award.) (SG)
