An Interdisciplinary Approach to the Professional Studies Component for Elementary Teachers at North Adams State College.
North Adams State Coll., MA.
In this program, the courses "Psychology of Learning" and "Principles of Teaching" have been combined and there has been a pooling of professional talent in structuring the program components. In the first phase of the program, the student observes the child in many experiences and concentrates on the learning act. In the second phase, the future teacher concentrates on the teaching act. Microteaching is utilized and opportunities are provided for teaching groups of children from the campus laboratory school. In the third phase, students have the opportunity for greater involvement in the laboratory school and the learning-teaching process. Evaluation of students is continuous throughout the semester. (The program description includes a detailed outline of the eight-credit course, with objectives, activities, and materials listed for each phase.) (Author/RT)
