Feasibility Study: Behavioral Science Teacher Education Program. Final Report.
Michigan State Univ., East Lansing.
During 1968, Michigan State University developed a basic model and initial curriculum for the Behavioral Science Teacher Education Program (ED 027 285-ED 027 287), emphasizing the developmental experiences through the first years of teaching. This feasibility study was designed to analyze the human, material, and fiscal resources required to implement BSTEP, examine related issues, specify alternate solutions, explore various alternatives, and recommend a feasible operational model. The introduction provides an overview of the project, and section two details the nature and scope of program development. Other chapters deal with program development design and the five major curriculum areas, with outlines of the personnel and materials required for initial development, prototype testing, redevelopment, and continuous evaluation. The third section explores the relevance of the program, considers the impact of a changing society on the program and student attitudes, and analyzes the orientation and inservice needs of the faculty. The fourth section deals with administrative and management structure, including student selection and retention, grading practices, and advisement. The fifth section projects a budget for the 5-year period. (Author/MBM)
