Summary of the Cooperative Urban Teacher Education Evaluation, 1968-69. Working Paper, Vol. 2, No. 1.
Lawson, James H.; McClernon, Francis M.
This second of a series of evaluation reports of the Cooperative Urban Teacher Education (CUTE) program covers 1968-69 and replicates portions of the 1967-68 evaluation, assesses the effects of the program, and provides recommendations to the program directors. Data were collected in Kansas City, Mo., Oklahoma City, Okla., and Wichita, Kansas, three times during the 16-week program. The instruments and data-gathering devices used were the McREL Interaction Analysis, the Rokeach D-Scale, Teaching Situation Reaction Test, the Minnesota Teacher Attitude Inventory, the Pensacola Z-scale, the Cultural Attitude Inventory, and the Semantic Differential. Students also maintained logs to record their emotional feelings resulting from the program. After analysis of the data, 15 recommendations were made for improvement of the program, including inter-staff idea exchange, additional opportunities for students to discuss inner-city problems, individual conferences for students, greater involvement of the cooperating teachers, more practice of skills during microteaching sessions, and better understanding of the testing techniques and objectives. Descriptive statistics of test results for all semesters are given in the appendix. A related document is SP 004 290. (MBM)
