Making Teacher Education Relevant: Community College Cooperative Internship Program.
Hill, C. R.; Tolle, D. J.
This is a report and evaluation of a Ford Foundation-funded 5-year project to help prepare more effective teachers for 2-year post-high school occupational programs. It was conducted jointly by the Junior College District of St. Louis-St. Louis County and Southern Illinois University from July 1, 1966 to June 30, 1971. The primary goal of the Ford Project Community College Cooperative Internship Program for the preparation of teachers was to help increase the supply of more effective teachers and to help them gain a better understanding of the comprehensive community college. Interns had teaching responsibilities, took part in faculty and staff meetings, interviewed junior college faculty and attended two seminars at the university. The program was evaluated by administrators, faculty, and students as a very effective and worthwhile experience. (MN)
