[Cooperative Teacher Education Program.]
Adams State Coll. of Colorado, Alamosa.
The Adams State College Teacher Education Center at Los Alamos was established cooperatively by the College and the Los Alamos Public Schools. The center provides students in the elementary education program, over a span of two consecutive college quarters, the opportunity to complete the equivalent of 30-36 quarter hours of work in professional education. This work substitutes for the basic methods and general education courses required on campus and increases the time alloted to student teaching. Student teaching assignments are made to schools in which team teaching, ungradedness, and media centers are generally used. Public school teachers in a team approach with college personnel have determined the types of activities in which students will participate and the procedure for evaluation of the results. Instruction in the program is provided by a team of public school teachers chosen for their recognition as master teachers and interest and preparation in specific subject areas. Initial implementation of the new program occurred with a pilot group of nine students during January to June, 1970. Revisions based on evaluation of the pilot experiences are being implemented in the 1970-1971 school year. (The program description includes a schedule, a list of behavioral objectives and concepts for student teachers, and results of the pilot evaluation.) (RT)
