National Teacher Corps; Second Cycle Report. 1967-1969.
Beck, John M.; Black, Timuel
This document reports the second cycle Teacher Corps program in Chicago, which was designed to prepare elementary teachers for the inner-city schools. An introductory section lists program objectives, which emphasized improvement of education of the disadvantaged and school-community involvement of corpsmen. Formal and informal evaluation and research related to the program and innovations introduced into the second cycle are described. The Teacher Corps program's impact on educational programs of the consortium institutions is discussed. Community involvement activities of team leaders and interns in the various neighborhoods where their schools were located are summarized. The role of the intern in the school is traced including his involvement in an inservice program of observation, individual and small group instruction, and gradual progression to full teaching responsibility--as an extern in the second year. Recommendations for change in the program are listed. Appended are interns' reactions to the program, as voiced at the terminal conference; a list of courses and instructors; team plans for community activities; and two papers on the consortium course, Teaching the Language Arts in the Elementary School, which emphasize a systems approach and the use of the videotape recorder in teacher education.
