Dodl, Norman R.
This study proposed to examine the feasibility of implementing the total Florida State University Model for Preparing Elementary Teachers, by analyzing the cost/management factors and the human factors involved. It presents a conceptual extension of the specifications to an implementable instructional model, which was utilized as a theoretical basis for developing and implementing with trainees a prototype of the model curriculum. The total management system is described, with the rationale for management techniques, the procedures utilized, detailed descriptions of instructional management and costing systems, and findings based on the field tests. Inter-institutional collaboration and faculty development are described, as well as start-up requirements and projections of cooperating capabilities and requirements. One section deals with feasibility under the heading of "Constraints." An appendix contains a variety of items important to the understanding of the report, including a position paper on the rationale for fiscal management, much actual data from prototype operations, and samples of the many printouts available from the computerized management systems developed.
