Four Years of Insite; "To Strengthen Teacher Education."
Jaffe, Jane, Comp.
Instructional Systems in Teacher Education (Insite), a 5-year study for the improvement of teacher education, has kept pace with the first 4 years of its schedule for innovation, experimentation, and research. Many phases of the study are related to the program that permits students to obtain a master's degree in 4 full years of study, including summer sessions. Some students have now completed each of 3 major innovations: (1) the "acroclinical semester" which integrates methods instruction with practice teaching, (2) the resident teaching experience during which the student receives college credit and a beginning teacher's full salary as an intern in an outstanding school system in the Midwest or Hawaii, and (3) the graduate program which includes 6 hours in the graduate study of teaching plus 9 to 15 in the academic major with 6 hours of electives. Other innovations are a 5-hour Creative Arts Workshop for elementary teachers and 3 freshman and sophomore year seminars which cut across the typical subject matter lines in the natural sciences, humanities, and social sciences. Experimentation with such techniques as video taping has produced a series of films for the study of child behavior; the use of simulation techniques will result in production of a package program of problem-solving materials.
