Innovation in the Inner-City: A Report on Cooperative Urban Teacher Education Program.
Clothier, Grant M.; Lawson, James H.
One third of this report on the Mid-Continent Regional Educational Laboratory's Cooperative Urban Teacher Education (CUTE) Program is a description of background information including origins, evolution, organization, structure, and formulation of the concepts used. CUTE is designed to improve urban teaching through helping the teacher to understand both his own and his pupil's attitudes, insecurities, anxieties, and prejudices; to understand both his own and his pupil's environment and culture; and to have knowledge and competency in reflective teaching methods for inner-city learners. Forming the second third is a section on the major curriculum concepts which evolved from previous discussion and which are studied within a framework of sequential development of curriculum activities (derived from six stages of student concerns: Where do I stand?, How adequate am I?, What do they do that?, How am I doing?, How are they doing?, How does what I am influence them?) related to teacher education, sociology, and mental health. The closing sections on assessment and evaluation include descriptions of instrumentation, data collection, analysis of the data, revisions of evaluation, curriculum modifications, and transportability. Also included is a 28-item bibliography. (SM)
