Experimental Pilot Program in Teacher Education. Report for the Period February-June 1969.
City Univ. of New York, NY. School of Education
This paper reports the last phase of planning and development for the Experimental Pilot Program in Teacher Education (EPPTE) which begins in September 1969 as an effort to find an effective alternative to the conventional model for training teachers. Activities of the project staff are described in the areas of (1) Publicity, including response from the profession and prospective staff and students; (2) Recruitment, which called for half the applicants from the usual admission channels and half through Project SEEK; (3) Admissions, conducted solely on the basis of interviews; (4) Administration and Policy Development, the work of the Planning and Development Committee and its subcommittees on Curriculum and Field Work, Admissions, and Staff; (5) Curriculum and Development (Content and Form), particularly course descriptions for the 4-year, 36-credit-hour professional sequence consisting of six hours of field work with two hours seminar per week for 30 weeks; and (6) the Liberal Arts and Science Requirements, which involved cooperative efforts of the School of Education and the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. In each area the report sets forth priority tasks, mostly administrative, required before the program can function effectively. A sample student schedule for the 8-semester program is included. (JS)
