A School-University Program for Integrated Teacher Training.
Kramer, Leonard; Stahl, Elsie
This is the final report of two-thirds of a three-year project jointly sponsored by Adelphi University, Central School District Number Four, Plainview, New York, and the New York State Education Department. The project was discontinued after the second year. A major weakness in teacher education is seen to be the traditional gap between pre-service training (the responsibility of the university), and in-service training (the responsibility of the school). Close cooperation and communication between university and school was intended to unify the student's training and to have a positive effect upon skills, attitudes, values, and behaviors. Tentative conclusions indicated that the closer communication, greater personal involvement of cooperating teachers in the design of the program, and greater acceptance and involvement of student teachers in the affairs of the school were having the desired effect of making the student teaching experience a broader, deeper, more meaningful one.
