Project 120.
Samalonis, Bernice
Project 120, 1965 winner of one of the Distinguished Achievement Awards of the American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education, was begun in 1960 to prepare prospective teachers for teaching in inner-city junior high schools. Field trips (planned by a college director of field experiences) into the inner city are provided to acquaint student teachers with the needs and resources of the community; consultations, recruitment, unofficial classroom observation, and advice to student teachers are offered by a college project director; and observation and evaluation of student teachers are provided by a cooperating teacher who serves as a subject-matter supervisor. Two types of peer observation and evaluation, supervised by the project director, are also used: the "cluster approach" in which student teachers observe and evaluate peers who are teaching the same subject matter, and the "total curriculum approach" in which student teachers observe and evaluate peers who are teaching other subject matter areas. (Included are a six-step procedure for peer evaluation and a student teacher-authored short history and evaluation of the project demonstrating its statistical success in increasing teacher persistence in the inner city.)
