Impact of the Florida Model Follow Through Program on a Sponsoring Institution.
Kaplan, Leonard; Tocco, T. Salvatore
The Florida Parent Education Follow Through Model (See ED 028 140 and ED 028 139) has fostered institutional change at the University of Florida in two ways: professors and making use of increased knowledge and understanding of the disadvantaged in their instructional content and format and the University has developed and had approved a 2-year innovative program leading to a master's degree in elementary education with a specialty in early childhood education. This program will initially involve 27 Teacher Corpsmen working in Jacksonville Model Schools implementing the home component of the Florida Parent Education Model. The program will emphasize university study toward certification and a degree and service to poverty children and their families in the community. Objectives will be to train teachers who can teach inner-city children effectively, think for themselves in curriculum and instructional development, work with parents and other community agencies to strengthen the learning environment of the child, work with paraprofessionals, and cooperate competently with parents and others in institutional change. Innovative components include emphasis on the disadvantaged, work in the disadvantaged schools, work with paraprofessional parent educators, training in theory and use of systematic classroom observation, academic preparation from a panel of specialists in a non-course format, intensive work in reading and language development, inservice work on a differentiated staff.
