Teachers for Secondary Schools Program Handbook.
Broyles, India L.
The Teachers for Secondary Schools Program (TSSP) is a one-year, intensive program for the preparation and certification of secondary school teachers. The program is inquiry-oriented, utilizing clinical training schools for program planning and delivery continuously during the year. Preservice interns from the University of Southern Maine are placed at one of five clinical training schools for a block of time. This handbook outlines TSSP policies and activities and describes pre-internship activities, coursework for interns and cooperating teachers, intern assignments and classroom activities, and intern evaluation, as well as the role, activities, and duties of the site coordinator, the university supervisor, and the school principal. Six TSSP special projects are briefly outlined: an electronic bulletin board linking the clinical training schools and the university, alliance with the College of Arts and Sciences, school improvement and restructuring, peer coaching, action research, and beginning teacher induction. Appendices include three observation forms for use by cooperating teachers, an intern evaluation form, and a reporting form used by interns to provide weekly reports to university supervisors. (IAH)
