Student Internship: Some Added Dimensions.

To train teachers to translate learning insights into creative curriculums, a more intensive school-college relationship and more meaningful teacher evaluation processes are needed. In a pre-intern phase, the university should provide the teacher candidate with experience in devising curricular models to fit his own needs, help him develop and create a teaching style relevant to both teacher and learner, and give him supervised classroom experience which allows him to see individual pupil differences through which he can devise wide curricular models. The internship phase in the cooperating school should place more responsibility on the cooperating teacher who helps the teacher intern create a curriculum which accounts for the potentialities of the class and who evaluates the intern. Also, a resident university director should be added who supervises interns and conducts inservice training programs for cooperating teachers in how to use recent research findings and teacher evaluation techniques (such as Flanders' system of interaction analysis).
