A Planning Document for Revised Elementary and Secondary Teacher Preparation Programs.
Haisley, F. B.; And Others
Intended to provide background information for task force use, this set of working papers concludes with recommendations for revising the University of Oregon College of Education teacher preparation programs. Section I summarizes the concerns of Oregon educators, reports recommendations made by an ad hoc state committee and the chancellor, and assesses the college's status in relation to those recommendations. Section II--on induction programs--reviews statements advocating that extended teacher education include induction, analyzes 5-year preparation programs in other states, and discusses state-mandated programs for first-year teachers, noting common elements, problems, and benefits. In section III the effects of state-entry induction programs, campus-based extended programs, and existing University of Oregon programs are assessed. A proposed campus-based extended program is outlined that would place two licensed interns in a classroom, each to be paid a regulated percentage of a beginning teacher's salary. Appendixes include joint committee and chancellor's recommendations, recurrent themes in the Oregon education dialog, models of 5-year campus-based preservice programs, a description of Georgia's performance-based certification system, and proposals entitled "Improving the Quality of Teacher education in Oregon."
