An Exchange Program in Teacher Education for British and American Students.
Connecticut Univ., Storrs. School of Education.
The University of Connecticut-Keswich Hall College exchange program is a 7-week experience which offers British and American students and faculty the opportunity to learn first-hand about the education and culture of another country. American students go to England from June 1 until mid-July, while British students come to the United States from September 1 until mid-October. Features of the program are 1) direct involvement and participation of students in elementary schools in the host countries; 2) opportunities for crosscultural understanding through the "host family" plan and visitation program; 3) participation of graduate students as "overseas assistants"; 4) cooperative fiscal investments of local schools and the university without outside funding. The program began in 1968 with 13 students participating from each college. It has been offered continually since that time with the number of students growing to 30 per year. (An appendix to the report contains comments on the program by British and American students.) (RT)
