A Cooperative Approach to Student Teaching (CAST).
A proposed teacher education program would provide more diversified student teacher training through the cooperation of the ten members of the College Center of the Finger Lakes and the school districts of the Southern Tier of New York State. The program has three major objectives: 1) to increase the utilization of objective evaluation techniques to assess and upgrade the teaching strategies of each student and master teacher, and to instruct college faculty and student teacher supervisors in the application of teaching-learning assessment instruments; 2) to facilitate the improvement of student teaching through the reorganization of the administration of student teaching, to create model student teaching centers, and to centralize the administration of the placement and assessment of student teachers; 3) to diversify the number of professional development experiences student teachers have available to them. The program would provide improved supervision through the increased number and type of college supervisor observations, and would serve as a model for other groups of small, liberal-arts oriented colleges. It would provide training for supervisors, master teachers, and student teachers, as well as for the staff of the participating school systems. It is planned to continue the project for 3 years, with an advisory council to evaluate it and recommend ways in which it can be improved, expanded, and extended.
