Teacher Preparation Work-Study Proposal.
Wayne State Univ., Detroit, MI.; Wayne State Univ., Detroit, MI. Monteith Coll.
A program is proposed which would recruit Negro inner-city high school students, primarily Negro young men who would ordinarily not go to college for financial or academic reasons (25 in each of three cycles), for teaching careers in elementary and junior high schools. A major emphasis is placed on providing a successful transition from high school to college. Students will engage in a 4-year work-study program leading to a bachelor's degree and to a provisional teaching certificate. They will receive almost all of their professional training in the field, earning increasing stipends as they move along a career ladder from paraprofessional (first two years), to student teacher (third year), to intern (fourth year), to certified teacher (fifth year). For the first year of full-time teaching, graduates placed in groups of three or four in any given school will participate in an on-going university-school seminar and will also work with college freshmen just entering the program. A full-time staff of one faculty member from Monteith College, one from the College of Education, and one clinical professor from the school system will facilitate development of the closest possible relationship between the general education and professional components of a completely restructured undergraduate teacher education program. (The proposed 5-year schedule and evaluation and dissemination plans are included.) (JS)
