Hammond, John, Ed.; And Others
The Work-Study Innovative Teaching Programme (WSITP) developed during 1975-1977 at Churchlands College in Western Australia proposes a developmental approach to continuous long-term practice teaching and concurrent related lecture experiences as a means of assisting student teachers in their search for personal meaning about teaching and about themselves. The program poses an alternative to the traditionally compartmentalized arrangement of personal and professional development courses via university study and distinctly separate periods of practice teaching with little or no close aid and supervision by more experienced educational personnel. The main focus of this report is on the planning, implementation, and evaluation of a pilot study of WSITP by the College and three cooperating primary schools in the Perth metropolitan region.
