The Ohio Model and the Multi-Unit School.
Nussel, Edward J.; And Others
This book shows the relationship of the Ohio Consortium Elementary Teacher Education Model (ED 025 456 and ED 025 457) to the Multi-unit school by summarizing development of the model (by the Ohio Consortium of State Universities of Ohio) and describing its implementation in a multi-unit school (Martin Luther King, Jr., in Toledo). The model (which considers all phases of teacher education from the initial preservice training of prospective teachers through the inservice training of those presently in elementary education, as well as all groups of educational personnel actively involved in the education, induction, and support of new teachers) is described through outlining its various developmental phases: 1) Phase 1--including development of general goals for teacher education, behavioral objectives, and educational specifications, and 2) Phase 2--the feasibility study in which the model was found to be feasible in all respects. The section of implementation of the model includes explanation of a multi-unit organization (which utilizes the concept of a differentiated staff) and description of the role of the principal, and three components of general organization (system-wide policy council, steering committee, and the unit), inservice education, planning time, student teaching, and teacher supervision. Appended are a checklist for schools starting a multi-unit program, sample weekly schedules, and a 90-item bibliography. (JS)
