Cycle II Teacher Corps. Joint Proposal-Final Report.
Santee School District, CA.; Escondido Union School District, CA.; San Diego City Schools, CA.; San Diego State Coll., CA.
This document reports the 2-year Cycle II Teacher Corps program in which San Diego State College and three school districts (San Diego Unified, Santee, and Escondido) cooperated to develop dedicated teachers (with M.A. degrees) prepared to teach in disadvantaged communities. Objectives of the program are listed, including that of meeting needs of the communities containing low-income populations of rural Mexican-American farm workers and inner-city Negroes and Western Europeans. The evaluation section of the report summarizes assessments of professional knowledge, teacher attitude, and general attitude of the corpsmen during and at the end of the program. Another section outlines changes or innovations brought about by the program: teaching and curriculum changes in the public schools and in the college and institutional changes in course development, degree program, certification, admission requirements, and community links. Two sections describe the program in the communities and schools in which interns worked, noting suggestions for improvement. Included are interns' descriptions of the communities; an outline of community work within the program schedule (preservice, inservice first year, interim summer, and inservice second year); and descriptions of corpsmen's inservice school involvement in each of six schools.
