The Teacher Education Research Center. Annual Report.
State Univ. of New York, Fredonia. Coll. at Fredonia.
The Teacher Education Research Center (TERC) program has developed during the past year from a group of loosely coordinated and unrelated projects to a problem-oriented program under several different components. The general problem under consideration is teacher induction, meaning the entire period of time between graduation and the moment the teacher feels secure and confident in his profession. The focus is on the first teaching experience. The TERC program has been divided into seven components under which all projects and activities are subsumed. These are: liaison with schools and other institutions, cooperation with pilot schools in developing a school-college program of individualized instruction, evaluation and modification of undergraduate teacher education programs, study of the induction of beginning teachers, cooperation with the State Bureau of Certification in developing performance-based criteria for certification, inservice teacher education programs in differentiated staffing, and an information system for teacher education trainees which will collect all data from tests and questionnaires. (A 132-page appendix contains details of the various TERC projects, some completed and some in progress.) (RT)
