Teacher Education and Job Corps Cooperative Project.
Costello, Melissa H.
This document presents a description and preliminary evaluation of a pilot project involving Gorham State College and the Poland Spring Job Corps Center for Women in a cooperative program designed to enlarge student teacher opportunities for working with disadvantaged students and to explore potentialities of Job Corps trainees in higher education. Developed by staffs of both the college and the center, the program enables student teachers to be placed at the Job Corps Center for an 8-week period, during which time they teach English, mathematics and general science to both individuals and groups, while receiving guidance from experienced Center personnel. In turn, selected Job Corps women are enrolled in freshman courses at the College and, under the provisions of a carefully planned advisor-advisee program, are offered assistance in making the transition from Center to College environment. Resources, staffs, and services of both institutions are shared, as are the minimal costs of the program. Preliminary evaluations indicate that the cooperative project is proving of mutual benefit to both the institutions and their students. (Author/JS)
