An EPDA Elementary-Secondary Institute Designed to Prepare Public School Teachers to Work with Student Teachers. (August 9, 1969-August 28, 1969). Director's Report.
Northern Illinois Univ., De Kalb.
A 3-week summer institute was conducted for 84 cooperating teachers, half of them elementary and half secondary teachers, 85 percent of them from the DeKalb area. Objectives were to develop their desire to work with student teachers and their concern for quality student teaching and to develop technical and human relations skills necessary for them to work effectively with student teachers. Results from cognitive and affective pre- and posttest measures indicated that the program was highly successful. Participants rated the relative value of the various components in this order: (1) 4-day field trip to the Association of Student Teaching Workshop in Bloomington where each was trained to use one of nine systems for analyzing the teaching act; (2) microteaching; (3) simulated student teacher-cooperating teacher conferences; (4) training in the use of a portable videotaping package; (5) class discussions; (6) lectures of instructors; (7) textbooks; (8) audiovisual laboratory in which each spent several hours being checked out on ten different pieces of equipment; and (9) guest speakers. (Included are the institute schedule, descriptions of the nine systems for analyzing teaching, abstracts of four addresses, and the measurement instruments.)
