Report on the Intern Teaching Program.
Temple Univ., Philadelphia, PA. Coll. of Education.
Teaching interns in the Temple program proceed through a 2- or 3-year training cycle which begins with a full-time, 6-week summer session of orientation to teaching for 8 semester hours of graduate credit. Interns accept a full-time, full-salary teaching position in a secondary school and during the first year enroll in the University for supervision and a weekly seminar (4 semester hours of graduate credit). During the second and third years of teaching, the intern enrolls in graduate courses for an additional 18 hours: four required courses on teaching of reading, nature of learning, special subject methods, and the school's role in society plus electives in an academic field or in professional education. Supervision continues, and upon completion of 30 semester hours, 2 years of satisfactory performance as a classroom teacher, and a comprehensive examination, the intern is eligible to receive a Master's Degree in Education. (Included are brief history and objectives of the program; course descriptions and outline of the program of field supervision; information on staff load and development activities; description of organization and administration as they relate to faculty and to student admissions, advisement, and degree requirements; description of equipment and facilities; and enrollment statistics including profile of current student population.
