Trainers of Teachers of Teachers.
Hawley, William B.; Vellanti, Joseph T.
Trainers of Teachers of Teachers (TTT) is primarily concerned with the preservice and inservice development of the trainers of teacher trainersand their students through a new pattern of graduate intern experience in a "school clinic" where representatives of the university, the schools, and the community meet in an urban secondary school complex to learn by means of a systematic analysis of the school environment. An outline of pilot-year activities was developed by the Michigan State University/Lansing School District summer planning committee in an 8-week workshop. A 10-day fall orientation program was conducted for the 34 participants (staff and interns) in the full-time academic year program. The clinic operated by means of three teams (humanities, natural sciences, and social sciences), each including MSU professional fellows, MSU student fellows, a Lansing school teacher, Lansing consultant, and a community representative, associated on a parity basis. Although the seminar focused on developing specific competencies by graduate interns (from understanding urban education problems to developing teacher educator skills), other participants also learned as they cooperated in a variety of activities in the Eastern High and Fattengill Junior High School, e.g., planning and teaching a seventh grade life science course. (Included are lists of major strengths, weaknesses, and recommendations for improvement and a table summary of goals, activities, and results.) (JS)
