Selected Teacher Preparation Programs.
Howe, Richard Davis
Junior College Research Review, v2 n9 May 1968
Representative of current junior college teacher preparation programs are those of the University of California at Los Angeles, Southern Illinois University, the University of South Florida, and Appalachian State University. UCLA has two programs: (1) the student teaching program in which a student is apprenticed to a master teacher for one course in a local junior college and (2) the internship program in which a student who previously has acquired a master's degree attends a 6-week summer session as well as seminars during the following year while serving as an intern. At Southern Illinois, interns are assigned to master teachers to learn the mode of operation of a nearby junior college district and to gain a better understanding of the philosophy, organization, and functions of student personnel services. South Florida has been involved in a cooperative project with four other institutions. Six participants from each institution are selected for the course in wh ch they get to visit, know, stimulate, and criticize their conferees in other institutions. Students enrolled in the Appalachian program are required to take courses and seminars dealing with junior college instruction. Graduates complete a full major in the teaching field and a minor in education and psychology. (DG)
