New Teachers: New Education. Student Impact Occasional Paper.
National Student Education Association, Washington, DC.
Nine innovative programs, using different kinds of internship, are described by the students taking part in them. The Elementary Education Intern Program at Brigham Young University uses gradual immersion in school activities rather than a sudden plunge. The Sausalito Teacher Education Project is an experimental on-site teacher preparation program sponsored by San Francisco State College to train teachers to be more effective in multi-ethnic, inner city classrooms. The University of Wisconsin at Milwaukee is developing a program to increase the responsibility and involvement of students. Northwestern University student teachers have been living and teaching at the Navajo Rough Rock Demonstration School in Arizona to gain insight into another culture. Excerpts from logs detail the experiences of two interns from Antioch-Putney Graduate School of Education in schools in Montgomery Co., Md., and Washington, D.C. At New Mexico State University a co-operative program in teacher education enabling students to learn on the job is now in its fifth year. In Kanawha Co., W. Va., seven colleges and universities cooperate with the school system in teacher education programs. The University of Washington's Tri-University Project has developed a prototype for elementary education, while Wayne State University prepares students for the inner city by giving them greater classroom responsibility.
