Education of Teachers by Unified Developmental Experiences (ETUDE).
Lock Haven State Coll., PA.
This interdisciplinary secondary school teacher education program which involves no course work in the ordinary sense evolved from an effort to move the emphasis in the teacher education program from abstractions and general principles to specific problems in the various subject curriculums. Its objective is to promote early behavior change in the future teacher through controlled performance activities within his academic major. Each student works with a team consisting of a curriculum and methods specialist in his academic area, and educational psychologist, a learning resources specialist, a foundations of education specialist, a field supervisor for his academic area, and a coordinator for the secondary education curriculum. Of great importance are field experiences such as classroom observation, teaching mini-lessons, and remedial tutoring of disadvantaged children. Informal evaluation through student opinionaires indicates that the program eliminates the common complaint of great disparity between educational theory and classroom practice. (RT)
