A Modified Teacher Preparation Program at the University of Hawaii. Project A.
Aten, Donald G.
This document describes the experimental teacher education curriculum developed by the University of Hawaii and reports an investigation of its effectiveness: a comparison between the achievement of 165 students who entered the experimental program in 1961 and that of 165 who entered the regular program the same year. Chapter 1 describes the experimental curriculum which includes a three-year liberal arts background, a sequence of education courses, one semester of part-time student teaching, and a one-semester full-time internship. Chapter 2 points up differences in the two 5-year undergraduate programs and analyzes student achievement in terms of course work completed and grade point averages of the 189 students who completed a program. Chapter 3 analyzes cooperating teacher ratings of the student teaching performances of the two groups; chapter 4 compares their scores on all sections of the National Teacher Examinations; and chapter 5 compares supervisor ratings of internship performances. Chapter 6 analyzes classroom observations of the 81 subjects (half from each program) teaching in Hawaii schools in 1967, and chapter 7 analyzes the attitudes, educational viewpoints, verbal understanding, and adjustment of the same teachers (as measured in 1967).
