This detailed syllabus for a one-semester course entitled Learning and Teaching in Senior High Schools given in conjunction with student teaching presents objectives of the course (including the integration of principles of educational psychology and teaching into the student's experiences in apprentice teaching; assistance to the student in adapting to the policies and practices of his assigned school and in learning to apply alternative policies and innovations; and the development of skills in performing duties as a teacher) and its organization (including the use of a team approach with an educational psychologist, subject-matter specialists, and cooperating teachers; and the utilization of the six hours per week of university study). Organized on the basis of spiral development, the syllabus has two parts which are subdivided into units of purpose and further divided into detailed methods, readings, and activities. Part 1, consisting of six units to be given in 16 hours, emphasizes the orientation of the apprentice teacher to his school environment, the teaching skills and curricular materials needed for the early part of the term, and a brief overview of methods and materials; Part 2, organized into 10 units to be given during the remainder of the semester, presents a sustained treatment of the principles of learning and relates them to the teaching of the respective subject-matter specialties of the apprentice teacher.
