Structured Occupational Internship For Experienced Vocational Teachers.
Stitt, Thomas, R.
The rapid industrialization of agriculture has necessitated the implementation of programs which more effectively coordinate state supervision activities, industry participation, and teacher education. In order to meet this need, a structured occupational experience was designed to provide beginning teachers with agricultural industry-related occupational experiences. This was achieved through a three-phase program including: (1) pre-internship preparation, (2) occupational internship, and (3) post-internship analysis. These phases were integrated into a course entitled "Structured Occupational Internship for Experienced Vocational Teachers." A brief description and evaluation of this program is included in this report. (Author/JS)
