Toward Real Teaching: A Team Internship Proposal.
Smith, E. Brooks; And Others
Journal of Teacher Education, v19 n1 p7-16 Spr 1968
The Detroit Public Schools-Wayne State University Elementary Team Internship Pilot Program was developed to provide an internship (after the student teaching experience) permitting elementary education students to assume the role of teacher. The team internship unit consisted of four interns, two assigned to each of two proximate classrooms; one teacher-director (supervising teacher) in charge of the two classrooms and the four interns; one clinical instructor (college supervisor); and one clinical professor (a senior faculty member of the College of Education to serve as an advisor). The teacher-director devoted full time to the program, the clinical instructor one-quarter time, and the clinical professor one-eighth time. After initial planning and preparation, the interns assumed full responsibility for their classes. Self-evaluation through video tape recordings, interschool visits, analysis of each other's teaching, and joint planning also were intern activities. For evaluation purposes, questionnaires were distributed to interns, clinical instructors, teacher-directors, and school administrators halfway through the program and upon completion of the program. Individual tape-recorded interviews were held with the same people. A more complete evaluation will involve follow-up of the interns as they assume regular teaching positions. (SG)
