The Improvement of Student Teaching Through a Consortium of Greater Cleveland Schools and Colleges. Vol. 1-3. Final Report.
Morford, John A.; Swegan, Donald B.
This three-volume report describes a research project which had the following objectives: 1) to improve the orientation programs for cooperating teachers who work with student teachers; 2) to improve procedures for selection and utilization of cooperating teachers in schools which accept student teachers; and 3) to develop experimental, innovative approaches to better college supervision of student teachers. Volume 1 describes the administrative and policy structure, the history of the student teaching improvement project, research activities, and the outgrowths of the project, which included improved interpersonal relations and orientation practices. Three appendixes give information on the structure of the committees, the project newsletter, and published non-research materials. Volume 2 contains 1) an analysis of student teaching in metropolitan Cleveland, 1967-1968; 2) a follow-up study of 1967-1968 student teachers in the Greater Cleveland Cuyahoga County area; and 3) a follow-up study of intermediate-grade student teachers in Cuyahoga County. Volume 3 contains 1) a report on a workshop orientation program for cooperating teachers; 2) an evaluation of the distribution and use of project audio-visual materials; 3) a conceptual teacher education center model; 4) the use of personality and attitude factors; 5) improvement of secondary school-college articulation in science education; and 6) a modern approach to chemistry laboratory experimentation at undergraduate level.
