Indiana's Pilot Program for Training Teacher Trainers.
Monroe County Community Schools Corp., Bloomington, IN.; Indiana Univ., Bloomington.
This project, coordinated by the Center for Innovation in Teacher Education, Indiana University, aims to improve the performance of methods instructors and teachers who supervise student teachers, to train teaching associates as methods instructors, to increase the training skills of advanced graduate students, and to increase the interdependence of school and university programs. Academic experience is provided by workshops and seminars, with practical experience as teacher trainers in four elementary schools in the Bloomington Metropolitan School District. The project is divided into two parts, the first dealing with praxiological and clinical teacher trainers and providing each group of trainees (methods instructors, elementary school teachers, undergraduates, and other university and school personnel) with opportunities to increase their skills through an integrated program of teacher training and elementary school instruction. The second part seeks to update the training of teachers of mathematics by introducing topics of current interest, including differential geometry, topology, algebraic geometry, etc., and to focus on three groups of teacher trainees--mathematics professors and teaching associates in the College of Arts and Sciences, methods professors and teaching associates in the School of Education, and supervising teachers in the schools.
