Analysis and Evaluation of Plans for Comprehensive Elementary Teacher Education Models. Final Report.
Engbretson, William E.
The final report on the 1967-68 design phase of the Elementary Teacher Education Development Program analyzes 71 unfunded proposals for teacher education models. (See ED 018 677 for funded models.) The report emphasizes the innovative and unique elements of the proposals, first through illustrating with proposal excerpts the nine required program components (Appendix D) and second through presenting eight edited and abbreviated models selected for their more inclusive coverage of components. Proposals were expected to detail theories and goals of teacher education in terms of desired teacher behaviors, a professional curriculum for prospective and inservice teachers, college faculty orientation, staff utilization, and followup and evaluative procedures including data management for continuous student diagnosis and program updating. A summary indicates commonalities and weaknesses in the unfunded models. The eight models selected for the second section were submitted by: State University College at Brockport, N.Y.; Stanford University; System Development Corporation; Temple University; George Peabody College for Teachers; University of Illinois; University of Tulsa; and University of Kentucky. A program introduction, statistical data on submissions, a 53-item bibliography, and a 145-item list of Office of Education, Bureau of Research documents on teacher education are included. (LP)
