The Model Program from the Student's Viewpoint.
Johnson, Charles E.
This paper describes how the Georgia model program for preparing elementary teachers (ED 025 491) will appear to a student participant when the model has moved from conceptualization to reality. Various preprofessional phases are described in the nine sections: (1) Recruitment, of the high school senior; (2) Application and Admission, including introduction to the new environment by an upperclassman; (3) Orientation, small group activities to acquaint him with the individualized program; (4) Seminar, assignment to a group of 20 education students (some nearly finished with their 1 to 2 years of paraprofessional work) where he will remain for periodic discussions until he becomes an assistant teacher; (5) The First PM (proficiency module) Block, a flexible period of time averaging 3 to 4 months during which he completes prescribed curriculum requirements; (6) Starting the PM, a routine involving introduction to the PM objectives and behaviors, preevaluation and analysis, the prescription and initial undertaking of learning tasks, and the progress review session with his instructor; (7) Other PMs, the same routine through a sequence which will involve him by the fourth week in three or four series of PMs which he will work on simultaneously in such subject areas as English, mathematics, biology; (8) Evaluation of Student Progress; (9) First Field Laboratory Experience, 5-week PMs in off-campus elementary schools.
